This is a brilliant book from a former Shropshire primary school teacher, traveller, poet, actor and artist. And now Carole Anne Carr from Ludlow can definitely add 'children's novelist' to her list of many talents. In her first book, aimed at 10 to 12 year olds, she uses her expertise and life experiences, woven together with a brilliant imagination to create 'First Wolf'.

Youngsters will be plunged into a brilliant vibrant adventure with just enough energy and realism to keep them on the edge of their seats without being 'too heavy' or too grown-up to cope with.

Together with Carole's Anglo-Saxon hero Toland, young readers will be transported on a journey to an incredible world. And along the way, they learn about truth, honesty, and friendship. and of course, that good always triumphs over evil.
I enjoyed this book, it has a proper plot, unlike some publications for pre-teens, and reading it holds so many benefits for young bookworms. It provides excellent reading to bridge the gap between books for children and the more adult material available for teenagers.
