Bellwether Riggwelter is, once again, out of blackberries. This time, rather than tiptoe through a forest full of predators, he comes up with a new plan. He will keep himself safe by blending in—he will sew a Wolf Suit! The disguise works perfectly . . . sort of. Bellwether realizes he can’t enjoy the forest in a bulky suit, and he may not be the only creature in the forest who feels that way. Perhaps not everyone is as wolfish as they appear.
With humor, darkness, and insight reminiscent of Jon Klassen and Edward Gorey, Sid Sharp turns the idiom “wolf in sheep’s clothing” on its head.
This award-winning hilarious and touching graphic novel debut about the pressures of conformity and conquering fear by finding community is the perfect contemporary folktale to press into the hands of anyone who has felt they need to pretend to be someone else.

Thank you NetGalley for the E-ARC of this graphic novel.
It’s definitely something that I would recommend for younger readers who are getting into graphic novels. I loved the progression of the sheep’s plan and the author is really good at showing the fear of the forest. I thought the plan and the ending was very quirky and not at all where I thought it was going to go.
