“The Wolf Song” is one of Astrid Lindgren’s most popular songs. It was written for the movie Ronia: The Robber’s Daughter, and the scenes where Lovis sings with Ronia in her arms have become classics.
The song has now been made into a book with amazing pictures by Lena Sjöberg. Her warm illustrations bring us out in the dark forest where the wolf lives and howls in the moonlight. The wolf is hungry and looking for food. Inside the warmly lit home, human children are rocked in gentle arms. The tension between safety and danger and threat and intimacy makes The Wolf Song an irresistible, timeless lullaby. Read, sing and enjoy Astrid Lindgren’s popular song, here with Lena Sjöberg’s warm illustrations.
