First-class illustrations and character design cuter than cute, with a clear layout that respects the graphic and gives it room. The art is both technically beautiful and carries through the book, even when the tones are daringly darker. The story runs straight and enchants both the reader and the young listener.

Suden hetki (The Hour of the Wolf) is a sweet little picture-book. Quality print on beautiful paper serve sympathetic illustrations well. The technique chosen demands a lot from the technical side, and some other solutions might have lost the sensitivity from the art. Strong embossing on the cover is a fun little detail.

A silent story reflects warmth and shelter in the grey world. Red thread of the binding connects with the red knitting wool in the story, which with the help of magic knitting pins will cover the cold silence. Soulful and sensitive landscapes will occasionally disagree with stock humans. Book is bound skillfully so that the spreads can be fully opened out of the fun, narrow format.
