The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell – book review and giveaway

Son1 has received a free copy of The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell to review.

The Wolf Wilders

Here is the book blurb.

Feodora and her mother live in the snowbound woods of Russia, in a house full of food and fireplaces. Ten minutes away, in a ruined chapel, lives a pack of wolves. Feodora’s mother is a wolf wilder, and Feo is a wolf wilder in training. A wolf wilder is the opposite of an animal tamer: it is a person who teaches tamed animals to fend for themselves, and to fight and to run, and to be wary of humans.

When the murderous hostility of the Russian Army threatens her very existence, Feo is left with no option but to go on the run. What follows is a story of revolution and adventure, about standing up for the things you love and fighting back. And, of course, wolves.

The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell

This book is set a hundred years ago in Russia. The aristocracy send their unwanted pet wolves to Feo’s mother to rewild them. However General Rakov of the Russian Army comes saying that in future they must shoot these wolves. They refuse to comply when the next wolf arrives and Rakov returns, capturing her mother and burning their home. Feo, Ilya and the wolves set off for St Petersburg to try to free her mother, meeting friends and foes enroute.

Here is son1’s video review.

The Wolf Wilder is available on Amazon, currently priced at £5.59 in paperback compared to RRP of £7.99 or in hardback or Kindle format and published by Bloomsbury. We both highly recommend this lovely story. Targeted at children age 9-11.
