    Having enjoyed the animated movie a lot (4-stars!), I thought I'd give this adaptation a go. It's fine enough, but definitely watch the movie first because the sound and motion add so much to the story presented here. I must admit that I'm quite ignorant of the real world events surrounding this fantasy: Oliver Cromwell's conquest of Ireland in the 1650s.

A cursory overview says it was a bloody affair that has reverberated through the centuries since. The wolf pack and supernatural beings here seem to represent the Irish people themselves, being destroyed and pushed from their land by Cromwell's imperialism. But the story can simply be enjoyed as one of friendship and magic helping good overcome evil. Plus wolves -- always awesome!!

    I absolutely loved "The Secret of Kells" and "The Song of the Sea," Tomm Moore's previous two films about Ireland and its mythology and legends. "WolfWalkers" looked to be just as gorgeous and impressive... and while I have yet to see the movie, its graphic novel adaptation is absolutely stunning and makes me hunger to see the movie all the more. It looks fantastic visually, tells a gripping story, and is all-in-all a wonderful read.

"WolfWalkers" looked to be just as gorgeous and impressive... and while I have yet to see the movie, its graphic novel adaptation is absolutely stunning and makes me hunger to see the movie all the more. It looks fantastic visually, tells a gripping story, and is all-in-all a wonderful read. Robyn Goodfellow has come from England to Ireland with her father, a man tasked with helping the invading British government to wipe out the last of the wolves from its forests. Robyn, bored and chafing from being stuck in the city walls while her father goes about his task, sneaks out to explore... and runs into Mebh, a wild and precocious girl who turns out to be a Wolfwalker -- someone who can communicate with wolves and even turn into a wolf! Robyn and Mebh forge a strong friendship... but Robyn's father is determined to lock her up for her own safety and kill the wolves. And to stop him from hurting her newfound friend, Robyn may find herself becoming the very thing her father fights against... The visual style of this graphic novel looks very close to the previews I've seen of the film, and of Tomm Moore's other films. His style hews closely to traditional drawings and illuminated manuscripts of ancient Ireland, and the colors are natural yet bold and pleasing to the eye. Illustrations have a nice dynamic flow to them, panel layout is easy to follow, and all in all the book looks gorgeous. The story is a fascinating one centering on the British occupation of Ireland, and gives us two strong and likable young heroines, a fascinating mythology, and a menacing (if a little flat) villain. Robyn's father is portrayed as a man just trying to do the best he can rather than as a villainous figure, and Robyn's development as a character is very satisfying to follow. I'm not sure how closely the Wolfwalker myth follows actual Irish mythology, but it's still fascinating, even if it does ring rather closely to traditional werewolf myths (perhaps the Wolfwalkers inspired those myths?). A beautiful companion piece to the "WolfWalkers" film, this is a great graphic novel for older kids and adults, albeit perhaps a bit too violent for very young children. And though it does seem to tell the complete story of the film, I'm still eager to see the film itself and see these gorgeous images in motion.

    Irish fairytales are fascinating. The illustrations and graphics are absolutely wonderful in this graphic novel. The story felt very similar to "The Secret of Kells". The book addresses friendship showing how kindness can beautifully transform a relationship. It also shows the detriment of blind obedience and how we should question the status quo. Dead fish can't swim upstream. But the ones that are alive can. This story poses questions and challenges 3 groups of people - parents, rulers, and ch Irish fairytales are fascinating.

The book addresses friendship showing how kindness can beautifully transform a relationship. It also shows the detriment of blind obedience and how we should question the status quo. Dead fish can't swim upstream. But the ones that are alive can. This story poses questions and challenges 3 groups of people - parents, rulers, and children. Parents should protect and give their children limits. But they also need to be the ones that are willing to go on adventures with their kids and allow their imaginations to soar. The religious pharisees need to repent of their pride and their legalistic rules they burden others with. The children should explore and learn to fight dragons. But they also need guidance, help, and need to know how to respect their parents. I think the story is aiming at harmony--where the forest and animals are treated with care, and where their can be unity with both man and animals. Well, Isaiah addresses this very thing where the child will play over the cobra's nest. And we are longing for the day when that will happen because it will. We are groaning for the resurrection...for the sons of God to be revealed. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I'm really excited to see it as the novel was written based off of the film, not the other way around. I do think the film will help give the novel even more life. I'm hopeful and excited to see what Cartoon Saloon and Tomm Moore will do for future animated films and graphic novels.

    So cute! I don’t have Apple TV+ so I haven’t seen the movie, but now I really want to! The graphic novel seems a very faithful adaptation of the film so some of the action gets lost when translated into panels. Overall, very cute story and the art is lovely!

    I loved this story and can't wait to watch the film! It reminded me a lot of The Secret of the Kells and Song of the Sea, both of which I love! This graphic novel will be great for young adult readers ages 9+ but there are some scary concepts so maybe care giver should read through first or with them?

    Love the beautiful, colorful art; love anything to do with shape-shifting and British Isle accents; love the nature, family, and folklore themes!

    4.5 to 5 stars. I think this definitely works better as a movie. I did enjoy the bonus content at the beginning which fleshed out the Wolfwalker lore a bit. The film references some of the added introduction we get in the graphic novel. The art is gorgeous. If you don't have access to Apple + and weren't able to sed it in theaters last month, I recommend reading the graphic novel. Its basically the movie. Hopefully we will get a DVD release of this fantastic film. For my review of the film Wolfw 4.5 to 5 stars. I think this definitely works better as a movie.

Hopefully we will get a DVD release of this fantastic film. For my review of the film Wolfwalkers: https://mirageshadowlance.wordpress.c... This story is a wonderful coming of age story looking at family, friends, what it means to be open to understanding those you are told are enemies, what does freedom mean, how do you protect those you love, religion and how it can be warped, and all woven into a beautiful fairy tale. Yes, it is revisionist history concerning Cromwell's end, but honestly I'm not complaining. I never liked him anyways. This graphic novel is steeped in Irish folklore and history. I loved every minute of it. I love seeing the bond between Robyn and her father. They want to help each other and clearly love each other. They just don't always know how to communicate clearly because of fear. This impacts how Robyn interacts with her friend Mebh, the young wolfwalker, as Robyn seeks to protect her new friend. They have a wonderful sisterly relationship. Robyn begins to understand her father when she starts making the same mistakes he makes trying to keep Mebh safe. The choices these characters make come from places of fear, love, and a desire to protect and do what's right. Even Cromwell in his own way does what he thinks is right. It is his desire to control and bend religion and people to his will that is the problem.

    Lord Protector Cromwell is determined to rid the forest of Ireland of its wolves and "civilize" the country with more farmland. But the forest is filled with more than meets the eye, including the last of the legendary wolfwalkers, people that are human when awake, wolves when asleep, and have magical healing powers.

But the forest is filled with more than meets the eye, including the last of the legendary wolfwalkers, people that are human when awake, wolves when asleep, and have magical healing powers. Young Robyn comes to Ireland with her father, a soldier of Lord Cromwell, ready to hunt wolves. But when Robyn sneaks into the forest for her own hunt, and instead stumbles upon another girl--wild wolfwalker Mebh--she realizes that maybe hunting wolves isn't the mission she and her father should be on. There is a lot happening here, but, except for a very abrupt "epilogue" spread at the end, the fast pace works well for the format. I'm not familiar with the movie this is adapted from, and I don't think I missed much. I think this might have benefited from less backstory--the whole Saint Patrick curse felt like an afterthought most of the time, and when it did come up it was more confusing than useful. The girls' friendship was fun, and the action regularly propelled the story forward.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. If I had one complaint about 'WolfWalkers' it's the relationship between Robyn and Bill Goodfellowe. Their story is one seen in many works of fiction and rarely is it done well. He is an overprotective father, to the point where he doesn't care if Robyn is unhappy as long as she is 'safe'. Throughout the story, Goodfellowe gets more and more controlling until both reach their breaking point with the "I'm afraid to lose you"/"You've already lost me" lines. One positive though is the ending. When If I had one complaint about 'WolfWalkers' it's the relationship between Robyn and Bill Goodfellowe.

One positive though is the ending. When Goodfellowe sees that Robyn is accepted, protected, and happy with Mebh, her Mother and their pack, he is willing to leave her be. He believes after what he has done he will not be welcome, so he is willing to leave Robyn with her pack. To me, this shows he has learned from what he had done, as he is doing what is best for her, even if it means he will not be apart of it.

    The art is incredible, but the story is fairly basic and doesn't expound on much of the background or expand on characterization which I found bland and disappointing. That being said, it is mainly a story geared for the whole family and so many will be unsurprised the story doesn't delve much deeper than the surface basics presented. I look forward to checking out the movie and suspect it will be even more wonderful with audio and fluid visuals of the intensely vivid art!

    I loved this book because it was about a legend from Ireland. In this legendary culture called Wolfwalkers, some people can turn into wolves when they sleep and also have healing powers. The book is about a girl named Robyn who meets a Wolfwalker named Mebh and how they become friends even though both of their cultures don't get along. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes myths and legends. I loved this book because it was about a legend from Ireland.

    I enjoyed the book, but I felt like the pacing was too fast for me to really immerse myself and connect with the characters. I also think this book would be best in a book club or classroom setting so that the colonialism aspect could be further discussed and explored. The illustrations are gorgeous and I found myself stopping frequently to just admire them.

    Wonderful story, but the animation frames from the movie really don't translate well to a graphic novel. The images are muddled and the action hard to follow.
