Emma Barnes 7+ novel Wolfie is a modern children’s classic that won the 2014 Fantastic Book Awards. And, like the ‘dog’ that Lucy thinks she’s getting, it’s isn’t just for Christmas, regardless of the snow on the Emma Chichester Clark cover (and even though the book has a The Snowman-like quality).

We grabbed a couple of minutes with Emma Barnes at Edinburgh International Book Festival and asked her to explain what gave rise to the idea behind it…and to read us a short extract.
