Wolf Stalker: A Mystery in Yellowstone National Park
Eligible for FREE SHIPPING

Editorial Reviews

The first in a series of mysteries set in America's national parks, Wolf Stalker is a real page-turner that should appeal to both boys and girls. The protagonists are 12-year-old Jack Landon, his younger sister, Ashley, and Troy Haverson, the unpredictable teen-aged boy who's living with the family as a foster child. Jack and Ashley's mom, a veterinarian, is called in to help with a wolf controversy in Yellowstone National Park. Troy is obsessed with finding his own mother, who has gone missing-yet he finds himself identifying with a wolf that's been shot by a sniper. The three kids use their wits to survive a night in the snowy wilds, and help prove that the most dangerous animals in the park may not be the wolves, but the humans. Librarians and teachers who have trouble getting boys to read should recommend this book; odds are that once they start reading they won't put it down. Parents of girls will be glad to note that 10-year-old Ashley pulls her own weight throughout the adventure.

Gr 5-8Jack Landon, 12, and his younger sister, Ashley, accompany their veterinarian mother and photographer father to Yellowstone Park. Mrs. Landon has been called in to investigate an incident in which a hunting dog was purportedly chased onto park land and killed by a pack of wolves. The family dynamics are complicated by Troy, a troubled teen who is in the temporary foster care of the Landons. Due to miscommunication and unforeseen circumstances, the young people end up spending a freezing night alone in the wild. Arrogant and condescending, Jack tries to assume control of the group, but Troy has his own agenda. Ashley, annoyed by her brother's attitude, asserts herself, and Jack finds that he must cooperate rather than dominate. The kids witness the shooting of a wolf and fear that the armed man may still be around. Throughout the night, they stay with the wounded wolf around a fire and talk and tell stories. In the morning, they are rescued and each has been affected by the ordeal. The wolf is saved and the mystery of the stalker is solved. This exciting book emphasizes the natural beauty and dangers of the wild. It includes several pages of full-color photos and facts about the Wolf Restoration Project and the nature of wolves. A new mystery series gets off to a great start.Marlene Gawron, Orange County Library, Orlando, FL
