The girl and the wolf book
THE GIRL AND THE WOLF by Katherena Vermette , Julie Flett | Kirkus ReviewsAnimals with human characteristics have been appearing in picture books for so long that their place or purpose in a story is rarely questioned — readers accept and embrace the conventions around all permutations of talking, clothed, and civically engaged creatures. But anthropomorphism often has a specific function and three new releases show how different the results can be when animals start talking. Motivated by the examples of flight she notices around her, Zora makes many unsuccessful attempts at liftoff, all the while chided by a cat named Tully. Both animal characters in the story fulfill the expectations of their respective species — Zora is lovably dopey and Tully is smugly superior. Two hilarious back-to-back aerial illustrations show Zora looking up in awe at a commercial plane followed by her sprawled out on the ground, willing herself to levitate. Some letters are underwhelming, with no clear species connection or punchline.

The Girl and the Wolf
Thank you! A berry-picking excursion turns potentially frightening when a girl wanders from her mother and encounters a wolf. Poetic descriptions and spare prose combine with simple yet textured mixed-media illustrations to create a story with a deeply cinematic quality. Muted, earth-toned images give depth while allowing the girl to stand out in her red dress. A tale about knowledge, power, and trust that reminds readers we used to speak with animals and still do—it already feels like a classic. There was a problem adding your email address.
