Booker longlisted author

Winner The Irish Times Books of the Year / Best Children's Novel 2022

A lyrical fable about the power of language and the relationship between humans and the natural world.

When Willow witnesses her animal-loving father, Silas, get kidnapped by a group of foxes and a huge wolf-like creature, she pursues them into the woods. There she meets wolves who tell her they know her father. Together they boldly enter the enormous tower the foxes have built deep in the forest. In the tower Willow discovers the dark project of the chief fox, Reynard, to create new life forms from magical clay buried in the Deep Forest where few can enter. To rescue her dad Willow must brave the Deep Forest and dig deep in herself to foil Reynard's evil scheme to remake the world - but she also finds herself siding with the foxes against their new oppressor, the charismatic but wicked lion Noble.

“Startlingly original. Sam Thompson is a visionary genius.”
Piers Torday, author of The Last Wild trilogy

‘[Wolfstongue] 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

‘The writing raises this to classic status … Gripping and profound, Wolfstongue may be for children but it is about being human.'
The New Statesman
