Image result for the last wolf grey

Published by Jonathan Cape, London

I have been a fan of Mini Grey’s for some time now, probably since she illustrated a pop-up version of Jim (Hilaire Belloc), which was quite extraordinary. It is now available, (sadly without the pop-ups), as a paperback.

This is her new book. Little Red tells her Mum that she’s off to catch a wolf. Now this is a generally agreed fact; there haven’t been many wolves around for some time.  Which is what Little Red’s mother thinks. So she wishes her daughter good luck, and requests she’s home for tea.

The result of Little Red’s adventures through the woods is a door, which is opened by the Last Wolf in the land. The Last Wolf suggests that Little Red might stay for tea, along with the Last Lynx and the Last Bear. They tell her of the

GOOD OLD DAYS…

when there were endless miles of forest…thousands of tasty grazing beasts to bite, the world was awash with flowers and bees and dripping with honey…when you could just lie on a branch and wait for lunch to wander under your paws…

This is a picture book about the good old days – and about forests and trees…and it is simply MARVELLOUS.

The Woodland Trust should sell it…

EVENT!

On Saturday 26th of May Mini Grey will be coming to Waterstones Finchley Road O2 (NW3 6LU) to talk to customers about her books…

We will have a selection of her titles to sell, that she will sign and dedicate for customers. Do come – a marvellous opportunity to meet this extraordinarily talented author and artist. She will be there from 3.30pm, and will stay around an hour…or maybe more, depending on how things go…

Copies of her books will be available…whilst stocks last.

You have been warned!
