In the Mouth of the Wolf

In the Mouth of the Wolf, written by Michael Morpurgo and illustrated by critically-acclaimed artist Barroux, is the true story of two brothers and the war that changed everything.

Michael Morpurgo’s wonderful storytelling and Barroux’s stunning artwork combine to tell the true story of Michael’s uncles against the epic backdrop of World War Two.

Francis and Pieter are brothers. As shadow of one war lingers, and the rumbles of another approach, the brothers argue. Francis is a fierce pacifist, while Pieter signs up to fight.

What happens next will change the course of Francis’s life forever . . . and throw him into the mouth of the wolf.
