The Little Red Wolf {Review}

35905318Synopsis:

Lose yourself in in the dark forests of Amelie Flechais’ spectacular artwork. A young wolf, on a journey to bring his grandmother a rabbit, is charmed by the nice little girl who offers to help him… but nice is not the same as good. A haunting fairy tale for children and adults alike.

Received a PDF of this graphic novel from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Review:

Rating: ★★★☆☆ {3.5}

Release Date: October 3rd 2017 by Lion Forge

The Little Red Wolf is a graphic novel/ children’s book about a young wolf cub who is sent off to deliver a rabbit to his grandmother. Along the way he gets distracted and eventually lost, only to be found by a little girl who offers to help him.

I found the art absolutely stunning. Amélie’s style is a gorgeous soft simplistic style that you can’t help but take your time on each page, not wanting to turn the page until you’ve look at every detail. As for the story, the switch of roles in the original Red Riding Hood tale was interesting. The switch gave a different point of view to the tale that I really enjoyed, however I felt like the story was a bit rushed in the end.

Personally I think it would have been a little better had the ending not been so abrupt and gave a bit more insight to the events the Little Red Wolf’s father was talking about. But overall I thought it was a fantastic and beautifully illustrated book, one that I would recommend for small children but I suggest the parent giving it a quick read/ flip through first as there is mention of death, animal hunting and illustrated pelts of wolves near the end of the book.
