La Cité des Loups
by Louise Bombardier
On October 31st, a couple of wolves furtively debarks at the port of Montreal and rapidly blends in with the Halloween crowd. Instinctively, they head for the hospital where Elise lives, a nine and a half year-old girl. According to an ancient legend, a child bearing their mark and suffering from a mysterious illness holds the key to the city of wolves, a mythical land that they have been seeking for so long... Elise, nicknamed the child with the wolf mask, does not realize that she will be guiding them on this fantastic quest.
La Cité des Loups is a fable about the imaginary, the joy of living and freedom.
