It is the long, hot summer of 1976. Hugo, the youngest child of three, is walking with his father in the woods. There, he comes face to face with a wolf – and from that moment on, his life will never be the same again.

Soon after, a tragic accident leaves Hugo desolate and disorientated. The family, now grieving and incomplete, moves home. Among Hugo’s new neighbours is the Wolf Man – a dangerous recluse, according to the boy next door. Spellbound by the movie “The Time Machine”, and desperate to return to the days before the accident, Hugo draws up plans to build a contraption that will turn back time. But only The Wolf Man has the parts Hugo needs to complete his machine, and that will mean entering his sinister neighbour’s house.

Beautifully illustrated in pencil, WOLF is a captivating and poignant graphic novel about confronting childhood grief and overcoming the loss of a loved one.
