Publisher Description

Welcome, my little lambs, to the Puszcza. It’s an ancient forest, a keeper of the deepest magic, where even the darkest fairy tales are real.

Here, a Girl is not supposed to be a woodcutter. Or be brave enough to walk alone.

Here, a Wolf is not supposed to love to read. Or be curious enough to meet a human.

And here, a Story is nothing like the ones you read in books, for the Witch can make the most startling tales come alive. All she needs is a Girl from the village, a Wolf from the forest, and a woodcutter with a nice, sharp ax.

So take care, little lambs, if you step into these woods. For in the Puszcza, it is always as dark as the hour between night and dawn — the time old folk call the Wolf Hour. If you lose your way here, you will be lost forever, your Story no longer your own.

You can bet your bones.

“The narration of this audiobook is spectacular. Thérèse Plummer brings power, venom, and precision, and David de Vries demonstrates equal power, along with warmth and humor…Plummer and de Vries alternate the narration. Plummer delivers the narrative as well as portraying Magia and Miss Grand, a manipulative witch. De Vries crafts intriguing vocal personalities for the wolf and the three pigs. While the story has many magical threads and altered folktales to keep in mind, the vivid narration will make following the characters a joy. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

  • “Holmes’ eerie, anachronistic storytelling style is perfectly suited for this postmodern fairy tale pastiche…Holmes’ dreamy narrative is not to be missed for fans of fairy tales and fairy tale retellings.”

    — Booklist
  • “A lovely, haunting weave of fable and fairytale, The Wolf Hour will claw its way into your heart and sing to your soul.”

    — Liesl Shurtliff, author of Red
  • “Holmes arms a woodcutter’s daughter and a sensitive wolf pup with a means of defense against the old familiar roles that threaten to swallow them whole. The story of how they come together to rewrite fate is bewitchingly delicious; you’ll gobble it up.”

    — Christine Heppermann, author of Poisoned Apples
