Wolf Island

ISBN: 9781459812642
Format: Paperback
Price: $19.95

The Great Bear Rainforest is a majestic place full of tall trees, huge bears and endless schools of salmon. Award-winning photographer and author Ian McAllister's luminous photographs illustrate the story of a lone wolf who swims to one of the small islands that dot the rainforest's coast. The island provides him with everything he needs—deer, salmon, fresh water—everything, that is, but a mate. When a female wolf arrives on the island's rocky shores, she and he start a family and introduce their pups to the island's bounty.

"On this adventure the reader learns many fascinating facts about the sea wolves...Each beautiful photograph enhances and illustrates the corresponding text...Wolf Island is highly recommended for both school and public libraries. The book would be a useful addition to study units on nature, ecological systems, habitat and, of course, wolves. It is also an excellent read-aloud for any story time group."

"Filled with beautiful color photographs of the wolves that live in the Great Bear Rainforest...This is definitely one that will be enjoyed by children who love wolves." Youth Services Book Reviews — April 8, 2017

"Readers will find much to like about the written account of the wolf's first year on his own...With Ian McAllister's wondrous photos and Nicholas Read's accessible text, young readers are sure to learn why it is of great importance to protect and sustain the Great Bear Rainforest." Sal's Fiction Addiction — April 5, 2017

"Striking photographs chronicle the life span of a male wolf in the Great Bear Rainforest...Careful and varied page layouts include concise, vivid language that describes his journey and images that bring the reader up close—all this is missing is the feeling of misty air on skin...This well-made title offers great visual detail supported by age-appropriate text." School Library Journal — February 28, 2017

"Wolf Island is an absolutely gorgeous book with amazing photographs and text explaining the life of a wolf in simple and evocative language. The book will be a great addition to all libraries. While the book is intended for those in the early grades, there is enough here to intrest older readers, leading them to the other books by this author/photographer pair and to other nature stories and nonfiction. What more can you ask for? Highly recommended." CM Magazine — January 13, 2017

"The story is really told by the big, bright pictures—which glow with the rhythms and beauties of this remote habitat...Enthralling fare for budding naturalists." Kirkus Reviews — January 17, 2017
