Synopsis

In a strange and sinister world, Ben is alone and he's hiding from the "woolvs." He has no family left, and he is running out of food and water. His only ally, Missus Radinski, doesn't believe the woolvs exist - until it is too late. Alone, Ben must go out into the streets and confront his fears.

In Woolvs in the Sitee, award-winning team Margaret Wild and Anne Spudvilas chart new territory. They have again created a book that is both beautiful and challenging.
