Wolfwalkers: the Graphic Novel, Samuel Sattin
Robyn lives in her new town, surrounded by the stone walls she is forbidden to leave. All her life she’s been training and trying to hunt wolves like her father. Then she meets Mebh: a wild wolfwalker child who healed Robyn’s bird. Bonding over the freedom of the forest, Robyn and Mebh soon become close friends- and Robyn’s ideologies about evil wolves are soon banished. But a danger to them all is coming. The townspeople want to burn the forest down. Mebh’s mother is missing; and the Lord Protector has something sinister in mind for the wolves…
Adapted from the film, I remember seeing the trailer- and I’m very glad that it’s been adapted into this beautiful graphic novel. The illustrations are bright, comic and touching; if you love wolves and fantasy, this book is for you.
If you liked this book, you might want to check out ‘Lightfall: the Girl and the Galdurian‘ by Tim Probert. I recommend this book for KS2-3.
