    'Libby swallowed hard. In front of her stood an enormous purple wolf-like creature.

    With a best friend like Wulfie, anything is possible!


    Wulfie is just like a puppy – fluffy and adorable.

    But unlike a puppy, he talks. And he's purple. His favourite food is smelly socks. He can be small as a snail or big as a bear. He's sweet and loyal and he's Libby's new best friend.

    Libby longs to star in the school play, and with Wulfie's help, she might get a chance to outshine her big bad brother, Rex.

    "Readers will be completely charmed by Wulfie and cheer on Libby as she develops confidence and tries to follow her dreams. Everyone will want their own fuzzy, purple friend to help them through the ups and downs of school life." –  Scope for Imagination

    "Young readers will empathise with the long-suffering Libby who, despite everything remains determined and positive; and there’s plenty to laugh at too. The other characters – pleasant or unpleasant – are also memorable, made all the more so through Josephine Wolff’s black and grey illustrations." – Red Reading Hub

    "Wulfie: Stage Fright by Lindsay J Sedgwick, with fantastic illustrations by Josephine Wolff, from award-winning publishers Little Island Books is the first book in a wonderful new series for emerging and independent readers." – RTÉjr

    "With just the right amount of mischief and lots of laughs Wulfie: Stage Fright is sure to delight young readers and have them cheering for an encore!"– The Book Activist

    "Thoroughly enjoyable, with serious messages alongside laugh-out-loud moments, it really is a great twist on the underdog story." – What I Read

    "The story will have you rooting for Libby to succeed and longing for Rex to get his comeuppance … The black and white illustrations throughout capture Wulfie’s cute and mischievous character and sympathetically portray Libby and her struggles with the monstrous Rex."  – Armadillo Magazine

    "Fantastically funny, heartfelt and warm, a delight to read that will leave you wanting more." –  LitVox

    "This delightful book, aimed at children of 6+ years, is both a hoot and a fable about overcoming our fears." – Annie-Book.com
