Feodora and her mother live in the snowbound woods of Russia, in a house full of food and fireplaces. Ten minutes away, in a ruined chapel, lives a pack of wolves. Feodora's mother is a wolf wilder, and Feo is a wolf wilder in training. A wolf wilder is the opposite of an animal tamer: it is a person who teaches tamed animals to fend for themselves, and to fight and to run, and to be wary of humans. When the murderous hostility of the Russian Army threatens her very existence, Feo is left with no option but to go on the run. What follows is a story of revolution and adventure, about standing up for the things you love and fighting back. And, of course, wolves.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A triumph! Exciting, moving, highly original, fierce, completely convincing * Philip Pullman *
The Wolf Wilder has everything: it's a truly compelling read; it's beautifully written; it's totally original and yet has the familiar feel of an established classic * Jacqueline Wilson *
The most exciting new children's novel for a decade ... [Rundell] is a master storyteller in the Philip Pullman category -- Amanda Craig * The Independent *
Wolves, snow and a heroine worthy of comparison to Lyra Belacqua. It's no mean feat to follow a novel as lauded as Rooftoppers, but Rundell has done it in great style -- Editor's Choice 20th March 2015 * The Bookseller, Children's Special *
This is glorious. A haunting, fast-paced snowy adventure with another superb gutsy heroine told in Rundell's beautiful and witty style -- A Case for Books * http://bit.ly/1cUOzEG *
The Wolf Wilder is the kind of novel that reminds you why books are worth reading and life is worth living * Lauren St John *
The Wolf Wilder is Katherine Rundell's best book yet - precise, magical and wise - it's a story that will stay with you for a long time after you've read it. I absolutely loved it * Sarah Crossan *
A gorgeous flight of imagination set in a snowy Russian fantasy world, this has both the beauty and the fierce, funny and uncompromising storytelling style that sets Katherine Rundell's books apart. The Wolf Wilder is a Faberge egg of a novel - rich, bright and perfect * Robin Stevens *
Just finished [the] sparkling, biting, deep-furred, snow-layered, paintbox bright The Wolf Wilder. Absolutely loved it. Gorgeous * Hilary McKay *
Come for the magical storytelling, stay for the breathtaking prose: a new Katherine Rundell novel is always a cause for celebration. The Wolf Wilder is, in a word, extraordinary * Katherine Applegate *
The hero of Katherine Rundell's new book may be young and small, but Feo has a spirit as wild and dauntless as that of the wolves she cares for. I don't know whether this irresistible force of nature and the colourful gang of waifs drawn to her had an actual hand in starting the Russian Revolution, but Rundell convinced me that they did. The Wolf Wilder is chilling (quite literally!) and thrilling from start to finish * Tor Seidler, author of Mean Margaret and Firstborn *

“A Gorgeous, Snowy Tale”

This book is a joy to read - even the more moving parts are just so beautiful, you can't helped but be completely wrapped up in it. The harsh, wintery setting makes it a delight to curl up with - whether on an... More

“Wild lands, untamed characters, and a story full of bravery and adventure”

When reading The Wolf Wilder I was so busy soaking up the wild atmosphere and the untamed characters and their adventures that the rest of the world fell by the wayside, utterly forgotten in the pure and simple... More
