“Bellweather has to figure out a way through the forest without getting eaten by the wolves. Combining the best attributes of picture books and graphic novels, this is a good pick for a longer story. The illustrations add dimension, and humor!”
— Margaret Neville, The King's English Bookshop, Salt Lake City, UT

Bellwether Riggwelter is, once again, out of blackberries. This time, rather than tiptoe through a forest full of predators, he comes up with a new plan. He will keep himself safe by blending in--he will sew a Wolf Suit The disguise works perfectly . . . sort of. Bellwether realizes he can't enjoy the forest in a bulky suit, and he may not be the only creature in the forest who feels that way. Perhaps not everyone is as wolfish as they appear.

With humor, darkness, and insight reminiscent of Jon Klassen and Edward Gorey, Sid Sharp turns the idiom "wolf in sheep's clothing" on its head.

This award-winning hilarious and touching graphic novel debut about the pressures of conformity and conquering fear by finding community is the perfect contemporary folktale to press into the hands of anyone who has felt they need to pretend to be someone else.
