The Wolf’s Secret by Myriam Dahman and Nicolas Digard

He is haunted by another creature living nearby: a girl whose beautiful voice has entranced him. The Wolf’s Secret is a wonderful gift for young readers, especially with its hardbound, gold foil detail. And yes, the drawing itself is totally worth it.
