‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

“Once there was a rabbit who had never seen a wolf, and a young wolf who had never seen a rabbit.”
Tom the rabbit meets a young wolf and they become good friends spending months together. Tom calls the wolf ‘Wolfy’ because he doesn’t have a name and teaches him to play marbles, read, count and fish for his food, while Wolfy teaches Tom to run very fast. However, soon their friendship is tested when they play ‘Who’s-afraid-of-the-big-bad-wolf?’ Is it possible for Tom and Wolfy to remain best friends?
French author and illustrator Grégoire Solotare’s picture book has sold over a million copies under its original French title Loulou and it continues to be an enduring bestseller. Translated by award-winning translator Daniel Hahn into English for the first time, the humour sparkles. It is a witty and endearing story showing the power of friendship – of a rabbit and a wolf who want to be best friends.
Loulo has sparked a series about this wolf and rabbit friendship, including Stronger than the Wolf and Wolf School and an animated film released in 2013, WOLFY: The Incredible Secret by Eric Omond and Grégoire Solotare.
