The Girl and the Wolf starts out like a Red Riding Hood tale with a young First Nations girl ignoring the warnings of her mother and getting lost in the woods. There she meets a wolf. This is where the narrative takes a sweet turn. As she makes her way back, the wolf asks the girl what she will do, and when she says no, the wolf responds yes you do, and before long she arrives home. While this tale is inspired by traditional stories, it is original, and expresses the good nature of the often vilified wolf. This means that there is a new moral ingrained. During the course of their interaction, the girl learns that before panic strikes, it is important to pause and assess the situation. The wolf's wisdom helps her to make wise decisions. Our initial caution, is quickly soothed by Vermette's story, and the calming effect of Flett's minimalist style. Both creators have delivered another great read for youth.

Fractured fairy tale. Wolf is not antagonist, actually helps young girl lost in the woods. Source Fuse #8 review
