The Last Wolf

In the wilds of the Scottish Highlands, Robbie McLeod is on the run from the English Redcoats. On his furtive travels he finds a tiny wolf cub – and a sign proclaiming the killing of the last wolf in Scotland. Feeling an instant bond with the abandoned orphan, Robbie adopts the cub, and a powerful loyalty grows between them. But when Robbie flees his homeland and seeks his fortune in the New World, has the time come for the wolf to find a newer, freer home too? Written by Michael Morpurgo and illustrated by Michael Foreman, this gem of a story sweeps readers from eighteenth century Europe right across the Atlantic.

    This book was set in a world war it was very good to read, it was a book of the last wolf. I would recommend this book to people who like adventurous books. it seems like a real story and quite sad at the end.
