About the Author

Emily Gravett is a recent graduate of Brighton University and winner of the 2004 Macmillan Prize for Illustration. A traveller in her youth, Emily has now settled in Brighton with her partner, their young daughter - and the family dog. WOLVES is her first picture book and marks the beginning of what will surely be an internationally stellar career as the creator of extraordinary books for children.

Reviews

Gr 1-3-This imaginative, cleverly designed story unfolds in a delectable blend of spare text and eloquent multimedia illustrations. A textured welcome mat serves as background for title and publisher information, the pages feel somewhat scratchy, and the wolves are expressively drawn with charcoal pencil. In the story, Rabbit borrows Wolves by Emily Grrrabbit from the West Bucks Public Burrowing Library and leaves with his nose already stuck in the red book. His long, wavy ears ooze movement. The author ingeniously develops her story on two levels: children will absorb the information that the rabbit is reading-"An adult wolf has forty-two teeth"-but also enjoy the suspenseful tale of what is happening to the rabbit as he walks along. As a "real" wolf becomes gradually more threatening, Rabbit becomes progressively smaller. Expressive illustrations show him obliviously walking up a bushy tail onto the back, and then the snout, of a wolf; but it is the uh-oh expression on his face as he slowly realizes that he is in trouble that is so piercingly vivid. The following page depicts a partially eaten book, and no rabbit. However, the author then reassures readers that "no rabbits were eaten during the making of this book" and thoughtfully provides an alternative ending for "sensitive children." This delightful picture book is best shared with children who can appreciate the sly humor.-Kirsten Cutler, Sonoma County Library, CA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
