Werewolf? There Wolf! – Review
Happy Werewolf Wednesday, everyone! This week I’d like to have a little fun, lighten the mood a bit, and talk about the most delightful kid’s book I’ve come across in a while: Werewolf? There Wolf! written by Kyle Sullivan and illustrated by Meg Hunt.
Red, distracted by her smartphone, has wandered into a mess of trouble in the form of a dark forest full of wolves! She’ll have to use all her wits, cunning, and inner strength to survive as she comes up against wolves or all shapes, sizes, and temperaments, including the biggest, baddest wolf of all.
If you’re looking for a kid friendly, empowered retelling of the classic Red Riding Hood tale for those modern-mind whippersnappers, I’m here to tell you you’ve found it in this delightfully tongue-twisty book. I came across it while at Emerald City Comicon a few years back and instantly bought a copy with the intention of reading it to my niece. Now I have two nieces, and this book is the first one they are getting read when they come over to visit!
A 2023 Independent Publisher Book Award Winner for Best Picture Book, there really is a lot to love about this tale. Not only does it teach kids fun words, but it also teaches them that the biggest, scariest thing in the world is no match for the power that they have inside themselves — monsters exist, there’s no use pretending that they don’t. But kids can be taught to fight them, and I think this book does that in a fun and spunky way!
The publisher of Werewolf? There Wolf!, Hazy Dell Press, has all kinds of fun books based on supernatural creatures and cryptids. If you’re finally is a little bit kooky and creepy, you should definitely check them out. And you certainly don’t have to have little ones to enjoy what they have to offer! After all, aren’t we all kids at heart?
