Title: Wolf Girl
Author: Anh Do
Description: When disaster separates Gwen from her family, she must fend for herself, all alone in the wilderness.
Luckily, she’s not alone for long… When a wolf puppy, a Labrador, a Chihuahua, and a greyhound want to make friends, Gwen discovers talents she didn’t know she possessed.
It will take all her new skills and strength just to survive. Does Gwen have what it takes to be leader of the pack?
A book that peaked my interest for my dog podcast, since it features a female protagonist and a pack of dogs. And it was a cute read, very fast paced but lacking some background details – why was there a war? Why did the planes look like they belonged in WWII when there were modern cars and clothes? I think children probably wouldn’t care about the little things though.
I love Gwen and the pack becoming family. Very sweet. And how she taught herself to survive.
I’m unsure about the age range its aimed for 8-14. I remember I was reading far more advanced books at 10-11 so perhaps for younger children and those with a more basic reading comprehension.
The illustrations are also very fun and I love the depictions of the dogs.
