'Pirate John-Wolf' by Natalie Quintart with art by Philippe Goossens is the story of a timid young dog (not wolf!) who learns to be brave.
John-Wolf, who looks like a dog to me, gets taken advantage of at school. He's too weak to answer the teacher, or stop his lunch from being stolen. But things are different when he is home alone and he can sing songs about brave pirates. One night, he is kidnapped and taken to a pirate ship of Captain Drake. Captain Drake wants John-Wolf to sing a song about him. Can John-Wolf summon up the courage to keep the pirates happy?
It's an odd story, and one could say that John-Wolf picks an odd time to be courageous. It's the kind of time in the real world that could be pretty dangerous, but this is a world of cartoon animals dressed like pirates, so I guess there is no harm. The illustrations are fun, although I'm still wondering why John-Wolf looks like a dog.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Clavis Books and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
