The Wolves of Currumpaw
Throughout the book, on the title pages, we see miniature wolves’ heads. This is a nice touch and constantly reminds us that is it the wolves the story is about.
The small pictures in this book tell the history of how New Mexico changed from an area of open space to a built up area of cattle farmers. The images look as though the illustrator has spent a lot of time on the detail.
At the beginning and the end of the story the illustrations are drawn using red, white and black. The mid-section consists of blues, browns and greys. We particularly liked the images introducing all of the characters of the story. The people appear to be 3D due to the shading. We felt it was a very sad story that Lobo and Blanca were killed but the image of them lying together was peaceful.
