We Were Wolves Reviews

A truly original and affecting piece of work. Unsettling but beautiful, sparse but packed with heart, it's a real invasion of the senses
A beautifully strange illustrated novel... the shadowy illustrations remind us of beasts lurking under the soil, and the fine line between myth and reality. This powerful, unsentimental novel calls to mind the work of Patrick Ness and David Almond, and their capacity to be both topical and timeless * Irish Times *
This beautiful, tensely written book is a classic of its kind, squeezing every drop of tension out of the reader until the final, hallucinatory climax ... beautifully written, taut and tense -- Melvin Burgess
Just like Harry Potter, this story cuts straight through to the human experiences, and the myths and fantasy only increase its emotional resonance * Mugglenet *
Yearning regret punctuated by glimpses of real companionship and pure dread. What a joy to see Jason's pictures matched by such an unsentimental but tender story -- Geraldine McCaughrean
