Red’s silence

Illustrations by Giulia Vetri

Seymour is no ordinary wolf. Frightened by violence and disgusted by meat, he decides to leave his pack. He settled in a cottage on a cliff overlooking the sea. There he read books by the fire and made himself mushroom tea.

One night, he discovers a little girl sinking into the sea. He rescues her, takes her in and looks after her. She doesn’t speak and barely eats. He names her Red. He reads her stories, she draws, they collect shells or go for walks in the forest. Little by little, Red grows up and opens up to life.

This is a story in the style of a fairytale, which evokes abuse with sensitivity, but is above all about parenthood.
