"From her illuminated heavens to Fox’s slumped, despondent posture, Dieckmann fills her illustrations with deep emotion in this beautiful book"

Sandra Dieckmann’s Waiting for Wolf is a tear-jerking tale of two friends, Fox and Wolf, and what happens when Wolf turns into starlight and disappears. Unable to accept the loss, Fox searches everywhere – until she realises that Wolf is never coming back, but that she has their shared memories still to treasure. From her illuminated heavens to Fox’s slumped, despondent posture, Dieckmann fills her illustrations with deep emotion in this beautiful book.
