The Wolf Wilder

When the winter wind sneaks under the door… When you need a fireside read… When only exquisite will do; then pick this. The Russian revolution retold with magic, wolves and storms. Cosy up for full-on fireside bliss. In Rooftoppers, Katherine Rundell let you stand on top of the world. Now she’s taking you into the pale heart of Russian winter. Feodora and her mum live in a snug little house in the snowbound woods. Nearby, in a ruined chapel, lives a pack of wolves. Don’t think this is your normal girl-meets-wolf fairy tale. Feo and her mum are wolf wilders: teaching wolves to follow their true feral nature. But just beyond the perfect snowglobe of Feo’s world is war. The murderous Russian army is approaching. Now Feo must learn what the wolves know: how to run and hide and fight…
