Howl is a masterfully told and exquisitely drawn story of a young girl’s way of expressing and resolving big feelings.

Maggie has had a very bad day.

First of all, the sun was the wrong shape, in a sky that was too blue. The spaghetti was too long, and her pyjamas were the wrong kind of pyjama.

Then Maggie begins to have wolfish thoughts …

‘In Howl Patrick’s warm storytelling style is beautifully enriched by Barrow’s bright, textured pencil drawings. Scribble has consistently put out fantastic children’s books since its launch in late 2016 and Howl is no exception. This is exactly the kind of gorgeous, imaginative, giftable picture book that booksellers will find themselves recommending far and wide come the lead-up to Christmas.’
-Bronte Coates, Books+Publishing

‘Howl is a book for our times, especially for mothers and children in lockdown. The narrative encourages us to express our emotions, it’s cathartic to howl it all out!’
-Leesa Lambert, The Little Bookroom

‘In a fantastical narrative that mirrors the plot of Where the Wild Things Are, a child learns to resolve overwhelming feelings … Scribbly strokes of coloured pencil, chalk pastel, and wax crayon appropriately illustrate Maggie’s frustrations. The refrain ‘If I am a person , I am also a wolf’ paints personhood as part and parcel of having wolfish feelings, and Wolf Mom’s advice (‘Take a deep breath. Count to seven, which is ten in human breaths, and imagine your biggest feelings flying into the sky’) will prove useful for anyone having one of those days.’
-Publishers Weekly
