What ages would I recommend it too? – Five and up.

Length? – An evening's read.

Characters? – Memorable, several characters.

Setting? – Real world among the Native Americans before they were on reservations.

Written approximately? – 1978.

Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Ready to read more.

Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? No.

Short storyline: A baby is saved by wolves, and then by a prominent man in a tribe. He grows up with some tribe members fearing him and his ability to continue communicating with the family of wolves that kept him alive for many months.

Notes for the reader: Interesting connotations on how to deal with bullys. It still encourages ignorance though, which doesn't work, as the story shows. In the end, I think he made it clear he would learn to stand up for himself, and his friends would stand with him.

As a writer, this was a relaxing, fun story that breaks most of the current "rules." ( )
