Katherine Rundell grew up in Africa and Europe. In 2008 she was elected a Fellow of All Souls College. Her second novel, ROOFTOPPERS, won the Blue Peter Award, the Waterstones Childrens’ Book Prize 2014, both within its category, and overall, and was shortlisted for a raft of other prizes including the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, the UKLA Award, and the Carnegie Medal. It was recently chosen as one of the Sunday Times’ 100 Modern Children’s Classics.

WOLF WILDER is her third children’s novel, and the first of three books she will write for Bloomsbury.

Summary

Feodora and her mother live in the snow-bound 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.
