" This is a lovely, accessible book, but there is simply too much death for me to be able to enjoy it myself or recommend it to other readers. I will review this book more fully on my blog at a later time. (Blog found at www.booksbeyondbinaries.blog) " said.

" This is an interesting book if you want to learn more about wolf behavior; if not, there is not much to enjoy in the storyline. " said.

" This was truly enchanting tale of wild wolf, based on true wolf. Stunning illustrations. " said.

" I won this book on Goodreads from Harper Children's. I enjoyed this book and couldn't help but feel sorry for Wander and everything he had to endure. I will be giving this book to my grandkids to read when they are old enough. Thank you Harper's Children for giving me the chance to read this book. " said.

"A tale of survival and growing into who you want and need to be, the story follows Swift, a newborn wolf pup who got his name by being the fastest of his siblings. We watch Swift experience the new world around him and feel his awe and sense of magic that nature inspires. But when a rival wolf pack comes and attacks his pack, Swift is forced to run to safety. Knowing - hoping - his family has managed to escape, he runs and runs and runs. Left alone in a new, unfamiliar environment, and just older than a yearling, Swift must learn to survive on his own and find his scattered family. Desperately trying to remember everything his mother and father taught him, he navigates the Pacific Northwest terrain and learns new things along the way. Rosanne Perry has written an epic journey that will speak to fans of Pax and Hatchet." said.

" 5 stars for the gorgeous illustrations, 3 stars for the story= average to 4.This book is a well-imagined account of a real wolf’s journey; it conveys animal behavior and portrays a sense of place well. I was really hoping it would read like Pax though (a book I loved), but, though it has some poetic writing, A Wolf Called Wander doesn’t have the same kind of brutiful classic vibe (and possibly it isn’t trying to). I could see middle graders enjoying it but maybe not loving it. " said.

"Thank you to Harper Collins and Edelweiss+. I love wolves, they are my passion. This book did a wonderful job raising awareness of how wolves are brutally hunted and mistreated by humans. It also brings awareness to how wildfires tragically affect wildlife. This was a beautifully written book with sorrow and tragedy seen through a wolf's eyes. There was also family and hope. This book is a really cool way to life through a wolf's eyes and to really understand them in a way we might not think about. It also does a wonderful job showing the circle of life and how it affects wildlife. " said.

"A wolf finds himself alone when a rival pack annihilates his family. This is the story of his journey to find a place of his own and establish his own pack. View the world through his eyes as he adapts to life on his own and navigates mountains, prairie and desert. Often demonized, the wolf gets an empathetic presentation along with beautiful illustrations. I received a paperback ARC from the publisher which unfortunately did not include the end notes with the true story behind the book. Would definitely recommend to animal lovers and fans of books like Pax and The One and Only Ivan." said.
