Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver
An outcast like his father, he has avoided all contact with the clans. But now his father lies dead: slaughtered by a demon in the form of a great bear. Somehow, Torak must keep going. His only ally is an orphaned wolf cub…. And through the whispering spruce trees comes an evil more terrible than any clan can imagine.
We love reading this book in Year 5 and we are really excited that we are starting with it this year! It has some amazing imagery and language in it which we can really discuss and delve deeper into! After reading the first page today, we have already discussed so much about the language and vocabulary used and what this makes us feel like. The monsters and characters in this book are brilliant and create so much tension for the reader!
