Booker longlisted author

Wolfstongue is a lyrical fable about the power of language and the relationship between humans and the natural world.

Deep in the Forest, the foxes live in an underground city built by their wolf slaves. The foxes’ leader Reynard controls everything with his clever talk. Silas is bullied at school because his words will not come. He wishes he could live in silence as animals do. One day Silas helps an injured wolf. Then he enters the secret world of the Forest, where the last remaining wolves fight to survive. But even there, language is power. Can Silas find his voice in time to help his wolf friends – can he become the Wolfstongue?

'I predict howls of approval — and prizes...This wonderful tale has all the makings of a modern classic with its exhilarating mix of ancient fable and contemporary issues. ... Not since Watership Down have animal dynamics felt so true and the political undertones so live.'
The Times

'It may sound like standard fantasy stuff, but the writing raises this to classic status. Like Ursula K Le Guin’s immortal Earthsea books, Wolfstongue is partly about language – in this case a sinister power that deprives animals of their natural freedom. Gripping and profound, Wolfstongue may be for children but it is about being human.'
New Statesman

'An unforgettable fable. Raw, devastating and brilliantly written.'
Lucy Strange, author of The Ghost of Gosswater

Myra Zepf, winner KPMG/CBI Children’s Book of the Year 2020

'A startling entrance into children’s fiction.'
