Librarians will find a large audience among middle grade youth who enjoy action adventure stories The Paleolithic time period will be a particular draw as well as the animal story.
To learn about the author, go to by Disney Hyperion on June 7, 2016 ARC courtesy of the publisher.
My interest in this novel waxed and waned I liked the premise, the characters, and the primary conflict between the human boy Kai , his brother and father, and his wolf Uff I have never read a novel about early humans, so that was a welcome change However, this book moved rather slowly, at least relative to the books I normally read I m also generally not captivated by animal friendship novels I can certainly imagine that this book would hook plenty of middle schoolers, so I ll recommend it to my readers who live the outdoors, animals, and short chapters.
An absolutely charming read More wisdom in this little story than many spiritual books Full of sadness and hope, strength and perseverance I was a bit doubtful when I started this story but it grabbed me soon after A great book for the young who are struggling to find their place in the world but equally good for all ages Prehistoric it may be but some things never change.
Afternoon read aloud The kids liked this, gave it a 4 I, unfortunately, really did not enjoy reading this aloud I usually do not mind the occasional scattered incomplete sentence, but this one used it frequently Like all the time Observations Were so many sentence fragments Annoying In every paragraph How do you read that fluidly Perhaps the author thought writing like that would be primitive, or immediate, or something, but personally it was way too much like reading my own private journal entries Two stars from me, so that averages out to a three Sounds fair If there is a sequel, L will want to read it, but she s going to read it on her own.

Confusing that s all I have to say One kid gave it 4 stars, the other gave it 5 Comments from them Interesting take on early human society I liked the wolf and Kai and Oooni The people should have treated Kai better I want to know what happens next Interesting vehicle for discussing comparing ideas about early human cultural religious development between this book and Daughter of Kura.
