The Girl Who Drank the Moon meets Pax in this fantastical tale of a wolf who forms an unlikely alliance with Baba Yaga to save the forest from a wicked tsar.

Since she was a pup, Zima has been taught to fear humans—especially witches—but when her family is threatened, she has no choice but to seek help from the witch Baba Yaga.

Baba Yaga never does magic for free, but it just so happens that she needs a wolf’s keen nose for a secret plan she’s brewing…Before Zima knows what’s happening, the witch has cast a switching spell and run off into the woods, while Zima is left behind in Baba Yaga’s hut—and Baba Yaga’s body!

Meanwhile, a young village girl named Nadya is also seeking the witch’s help, and when she meets Zima (in Baba Yaga’s form), they discover that they face a common enemy. With danger closing in, Zima must unite the wolves, the witches and the villagers against an evil that threatens them all.

“Karah Sutton has crafted a vivid and rollicking adventure that proves a wolf doesn’t have to be big or bad to win the day!”—Rosanne Parry, New York Times bestselling author of A Wolf Called Wander

For fans of The Girl Who Drank the Moon. A shimmering fairy tale with gorgeous, emotionally resonant writing and a strong commercial premise.

A captivating animal narrator ala A Wolf Called Wander. Animal perspectives are so hard to get right, and Karah Sutton absolutely nails it. Zima is both relatable and believably wolf-y.

An author to watch. We signed up two books with Karah because her pitch-perfect middle grade voice and fills a gap on our list for MG fantasy with literary writing, inventive world-building and commercial appeal.

Richly illustrated. Interior art brings the story to life, making for a luxe package that will stand out on the shelves.

Rooted in Russian folklore. The folkloric connection provides a jumping-off point for classroom discussions.

Karah Sutton has loved Baba Yaga, ballet, and blini ever since she had to do a research project on her Russian heritage in the third grade. Her hunger for adventure inspired her to move from Kentucky to New Zealand, where it was rumored she would find talking trees and the occasional wood elf. Karah spent four years as a bookseller before she turned to writing her own fiction. A Wolf For a A Spell is her first novel.
