Booklist - 12/15/2020 *Starred Review* Wolfboy is hungry. And he’s looking for rabbits. He stomps through shadowy trees, sploshes through the murky creek, climbs trees, slogs through soggy bogs, and leaps over steep ravines, but can’t find rabbits anywhere. By the time he marches into Moonberry Meadow, he is not only hungry, he’s huffy, drooly, growly, fussy, and howly as well. When the rabbits finally arrive with their delicate ears and fluffy tails, Wolfboy crouches down and opens his mouth—to eat the special moonberry pie that they made for him. Harkness’ impressive career in animation (25 years of experience at Disney) is evident on every page in the remarkable attention to detail, the cinematic and thoughtful framing of each individual image within the context of the story, the use of dramatic close-ups to heighten tension, and the satisfying message of friendship in the story's unexpectedly funny resolution. The text is delightful and simple, using repetitive variations that naturally encourage participation in read-aloud settings, but it’s the exceptional artwork that truly makes this a masterpiece. Each spread—from expansive landscapes to deliberately cropped features—is painstakingly created with hand-formed clay and then photographed to yield textural and three-dimensional images with striking use of shadow and light that make for an imaginative and completely immersive reading adventure. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
