In a time of superstition and magic, a young apprentice hunter, Robyn Goodfellowe, journeys to Ireland with her father whose job it is to wipe out the last wolf pack. Robyn, unable to hunt with her father and sick of being confined, sneaks out to explore the forbidden lands outside the city walls. There, Robyn befriends a free-spirited girl, Mebh, a member of a mysterious tribe of WolfWalkers rumored to have the ability to transform into wolves by night.
After learning that WolfWalkers aren't to be feared, Robyn decides she must protect Mebh and her pack from the hunters. As the girls search for Mebh’s missing mother, Robyn uncovers a secret that draws her further into the enchanted world of the WolfWalkers and risks turning her into the very thing her father is tasked to destroy. Based on the beautifully hand-crafted animated adventure, WolfWalkers, this is an enchanting graphic novel about a feud, a friendship, and two girls forever changed.
"Sattin’s adaptation is a visual delight, with largely wordless action sequences filled with fast, edge-of-your-seat pacing culminating in a message stressing the importance of tolerance and empathy. Robyn and Mebh’s friendship comes alive through the panels, making this a strong female-driven alternate history set in a time when girls had few choices.... A sweet and compelling friendship story." — Kirkus Reviews
