Can Hop find a way to escape the wolves in her nightmares, even if they chase her in helicopters? Mummy thinks so…

Every night, Hop has nightmares filled with, scary, hungry-eyed wolves. She knows they only exist in her dreams but they still seem very real. Her mummy comforts her and has some good advice, but can Hop find the courage to conquer the wolves?

Practical advice for children who suffer night fears and terrors, in a gentle and funny story for the youngest of readers, illustrated by Sainsbury’s Children’s Book Award-Winning Paddy Donnelly.

Review by Stacey

Wolves in Helicopters is a young children’s picture book about nightmares. Little Hop has a repetitive dream. Every night she dreams of wolves chasing her. Her mum tries different techniques to stop her being scared but none work until she realises that she is in charge of her dreams.

This bright, colourful picture book is beautifully adorned with glorious full-page illustrations that although do feature Hop’s nightmares are not frightening, they do, however, make the story more interesting.

There are a lot of repeated passages for new readers and some lovely advice to help children who may suffer from nightmares. I was expecting there to be more about ‘wolves in helicopters’ but this is just one tiny part of the book.

Overall, if you have a child that is having nightmares, this book may be a big help. It shows exactly what Hop feels about her dreams and has a positive outcome which hopefully children who have nightmares can have too after reading it. It may also help adults to have a conversation about nightmares with the reader.
