Editorial Reviews

CM Magazine
"An exciting story that boys will love. Recommended."
Children's Literature
A simple, intriguing, yet satisfying story makes this early chapter book a pleasure to read. Matt is away at camp for the first time, and he struggles with the many outdoor activities, from swimming to canoeing. On his second night, the mysterious howling of a lone wolf appeals to Matt's sense of loneliness. However, homesickness and isolation are both overcome as Matt makes friends with some of his cabin-mates, and it is not until the last night of his stay that he encounters the wolf making the noise. As the story progresses, the reader learns that Matt's father rescued a wolf from a trap when he was at the camp, and connections abound as Matt is led to rescue the pup of what may be the same wolf. Well-paced and accompanied by a number of lovely charcoal/pencil drawings, this excellent early chapter book provides enough of a story to keep the reader entertained, without being overly long. 2005, Orca Book Publishers, Ages 7 to 9.

Read an Excerpt

For the first time in his life, Matt knew terror. He had heard of being frozen with fear. Well, now he was. He could not move. He tried hard to see into the darkness. He tried to hear if the wolf was coming nearer. But he could see nothing. All he could hear was the sound of raindrops landing all around him. Then, right in front of him, a white form took shape.
