May’s BoTM is A Wolf Called Wander by Rosanne Parry and illustrated by Mónica Armiño.
Inspired by a true story, A Wolf Called Wander is about family, courage and survival. The young wolf Swift lives and learns happily with his family and his pack in the mountains until the terrible day when rival wolves invade and take over their home. Alone for the first time, Swift decides against trying to survive on the fringes of his old territory and sets off on a long and perilous journey to search for a new home.
A story of courage, resilience and companionship, which doesn’t shy away from the brutalities of life in the wild, A Wolf Called Wander is Rosanne Parry’s sixth children’s novel with beautiful illustrations from artist Mónica Armiño.
Inspired by the true story of the wolf known as OR-7 which naturalists tracked in the wild, and including a factual section on wolves and their environment, this is a perfect book for animal and nature lovers.
