    Wolf Brother is about a boy whose father is killed by a demon bear. The boy sets out to kill the bear but on the way finds a girl who knows a prophecy about the boy. An old woman tells the two children how to defeat the bear and they begin a long journey. I like this book because it explains a lot about how to live in the wild and survive. I would like to talk to wolfs like the boy.

    I first read this book when I was completing my teacher training, and subsequently raced through the other books in the series! It is always number one on my list of books to recommend to my pupils – with brave and adventurous characters and awe-inspiring settings. I really loved the idea of belonging to a ‘clan’ and having a spirit animal.

    I really enjoyed reading this book even though it is quite sad at points and when I finished it I went and read the rest of the series which I really recommend

    I feel sad for Torak because his father has died but he has found a orphan wolf who he walks many nights with and the wolf calls him Tall tailless. After they have been walking for a long time they find the Raven clan and they make friends with Renn and Torak finds all three pieces of the Nauak. In the next book in the series I think they will reach the mountains and have a ferocious fight. I would recommend to boys and girls, probably you would need to be over 8 years old, because this book is quite emotional and scary and dramatic.

    This gripping book is exciting and thrilling.

  7. Dshawn Richards says:

    I like this book because of how much action there was and that how basically every day that when the cub started to evolve into a full grown wolf.

    I really enjoyed reading this book and I like how it goes from Torak wanting to kill the wolf to becoming best friends. But I was really sad when Toraks dad dies in the beginning

    I really enjoyed this book . I think writer wants to tell you the hard that it was the Stone Age.

  12. Otto Meyric Rothstein says:

    I loved this book book because it had lots scary bits and Torak is very clever and very stupid at times. However i’m giving this 4 stars because it’s got a bit of nature in which isn’t my favorite thing.

  13. fives says:

    This is a great book because it makes you think how hard it was in the stone age…

  14. ghume says:

  15. Mr Milne says:
