    Read at all costs

    The proverbial 'if you can only read one book make it this one' phase is one, that if anything, only serves as an inadequate understatment when used to describe this totally captivating and uniquely moving book. First time novelist, Evan Kuhlman, has crafted a simple yet emotionally overpowering story of death and the extraordinary means a young brother (Stephen) will adopt to deal with the loss of his older sibling (Francis.) In this case, create a comic book super hero - hence the book's title - that provides the outlet young Stephen needs to overcome his sorrow. This 'graphic novel within a novel' concept is a unique touch that weaves this poignant tale together and showcases the ample artistic talents of co-illustrators, Brendon and Brian Fraim. Buy this book and share it with everyone you know.

    A novel you won't soon forget

    I normally read reviews, not write them, but I absolutely love this novel so I am spurred into action. First of all 'Wolf Boy' is something that I've never seen before, a novel spliced together with a graphic novel, but more importantly the characters, Stephen Harrelson and his family, etc, are very heartfelt and come across as totally real, lovely people, even when they aren't doing lovely things. The main story, about a family struggling with the sudden loss of a child, is one that will grab onto you from the start and not let go, or at least it did that to me. I am strongly recommending this book to all of my book- loving friends and also to strangers, such as you! My only idea would have been to make Marky Mark (the little sister has a crush on him like I used to) appear in the novel part or the graphic novel part or both. Summary: a beautiful and unusual book worth reading. One of a kind, really.
