I just couldn’t resist this gorgeous looking book. Plus, while I am not 100% Sophy, I know the feeling of being laughed at, having a hard time finding courage, and being brave enough to talk. Back when I was her age I was just very shy and wasn’t that talkative. I would have loved to have gone through the same journey as Sophy did in this book.
Yes, a journey. Because Sophy loves dressing up in a wolf suit and pretend she is a wolf! One day something magical happened, I am still a bit unsure what happened there (though later I could more clearly see what was shining, sorry the quality of my ASCM isn’t the best), but she finds herself in a snowy landscape with wolves! She plays, she roars, she howls. She has a fantastic time and I just loved seeing her be with the wolves. I loved the lessons she learned and how brave she was.
The ending was so sweet, I was happy for Sophy, though I do think it was a bit fast. Then again this is a picture book with limited pages, so I can forgive it.
The art was quite nice. I would love to see it in physical form as the quality of the scans wasn’t too good at times.
All in all, a nice book about a girl finding her bravery. A nice book for this wintery season.
