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 pajamas were the wrong kind of pajama.
Then Maggie begins to have wolfish thoughts...
Maggie and her mum are both having bad days - everything is just wrong - but when darkness falls and the moon comes out, thier inner wolves appear. They dance around the garden and HOWWWL! It feels good to be a wolf! Tired Maggie/Wolf Girl howls away the gripes and goes to bed happy to be a girl again. A fun story and bright illustrations- lots to talk about - especially around what to do when you're just having a bad day!
