“Fairy tale and history merge seamlessly” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) in this enchanting and lyrical novel about love and resilience from the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winner, Katherine Rundell.

Feo’s life is extraordinary. Her mother trains domesticated wolves to be able to fend for themselves in the snowy wilderness of Russia, and Feo is following in her footsteps to become a wolf wilder. She loves taking care of the wolves, especially the three who stay at the house because they refuse to leave Feo, even though they’ve already been wilded. But not everyone is enamored with the wolves, or with the fact that Feo and her mother are turning them wild. And when her mother is taken captive, Feo must travel through the cold, harsh woods to save her—and learn from her wolves how to survive.

THE WOLF WILDER is an exciting and mysterious account of how friends can help you overcome CHALLENGES. It tells the story of 12-year-old Feo, who lives in the 1910s in snowy Russia. She lives in the woods with her mother Marina, and they rewild pet WOLVES. Which is a very nice occupation. The book begins with some soldiers barging into the hut and demanding 3 trillion dollars because one of their wilded wolves killed an elk. They confiscate Feo's golden necklace and issue a stern warning: If they ever find out that they have been wilding wolves again, there will be SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES. But they do it anyway, because why not? Then they get caught and Marina is sent to jail. So, Feo and her wolf friends, along with a human named Ilya, set out to rescue her mother and fight General Rakov, the cruel commander of the Russian Army who is EVIL. This book was very funny, especially about wolves eating toes. And it had a lot of action in it too! It also teaches about the importance of bravery and WOLVES. I recommend it to people who like fast-paced stories with animals in them.

This is an amazing book! It is about this girl named Feo, and her mother trains and helps wolves. Feo has a life with wolves and when her mother is taken realizes she has to do a lot more than travel with wolves to save her precious mother.

Mya Mya

This book has really good meaning to it, sometimes being afraid is okay. And sometimes you have to do things on your own to get what you want. Feo has a little bit of help from the wolves that her and her mother rewild, but it helps to get what she wants.
