Publisher's Summary

A girl. A wolf. A red cape. And...pigs? In the vein of A Tale Dark and Grimm, this gorgeously written, endlessly surprising retelling explores the stories and wildness that define us.

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 axe. 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.
