The Wolf Wilder


This book is unlike any other I’ve read. Having been lucky enough to meet the author, I’d suggest it reflects her resourcefulness, undefinability and resilience.

Feodora’s courage and sense of justice power her through the Russian winter wilderness to turn of the twentieth-century Romanov society; from woods, starving peasants, emergent Bolsheviks, army deserters, would-be dancers, all the while fighting against cruelty, oppression and superstition. ‘

The Wolf Wilder‘ is a powerful, raw and compulsive story included, deservedly, on every nomination list for children’s book awards. Katherine Rundell, was selected as one of three young British children’s writers, from an international group of forty, for the inaugural Aarhus, Hay Festival Award, 2017.

The Wolf Wilder

Katherine Rundell


In pre-revolutionary Russia, there were fierce battles for power, between interest groups, church, village, townspeople and traditionalists. Caught within these are Feo and Ilya, desperate to save themselves, their loved ones and their way of life. ‘The Wolf Wilder‘ is a heart in the throat, pacy, icy, wonderful adventure story, using history, superstition and the buildup to a revolution to drive its edge and thrills.
