KAB Review: Old Wolf

Avi's latest gets a stamp of approval!
Avi's latest gets a stamp of approval!

Toby says:

Old Wolf by Avi is about Nashoba, a wolf pack leader, at the end of his life span and the journey he leads his pack on for food which ends with him exiled from the pack, unable to walk, and close to humans with only a raven to help him. When a human finally comes, the young 13 year old sees the raven first and in desperation to become a true hunter shoots the bird with his bow and arrow. What will Nashoba do without his friend and a human so close by?

This was a good book and a quick read. It kept me wanting to find out what will happen to Nashoba and his pack. I recommend this book to anyone who likes talking animal books such as The Wolves of the Beyond Series by Kathryn Lasky, or is just looking for a short but interesting book.
