The Last Wolf

Author: Michael Morpurgo, Illustrator: Michael Foreman

Ref: 9780440865070
Michael Morpurgo has created a sweeping and dramatic story in the time of Bonnie Prince Charlie. This spellbinding tale is complemented perfectly by Michael Foreman's illustrations. Robbie McLeod and a wolf cub, both orphaned, venture far from their birthplace, a land of rebellious fighters and vicious redcoats. There is little constancy in Robbie's adventurous life, save for the companionship of his wolf. But when at last Robbie finds a place where he can peacefully make his home, he knows in his heart that the wolf must find his own natural home too...

Winner of Smarties Book Prize Bronze Award 2002. Shortlisted for Smarties Book Prize 6-8 Category 2002.

Critic Reviews
"Michael Morpurgo has a knack of taking one small fact and weaving around it a vibrant tale that brings a slice of history to life" TES "The deceptively simple narrative style ... conveys hope and despair, love and hate, and finally peace ... Satisfying, thoughtful and ultimately heart-warming" Financial Times "This is a beautifully produced book, with a striking peephole cover and pen-and-wash illustrations by Michael Foreman that serve to dramatise the emotional depth of this touching story about friendship in adversity" Glasgow Herald "A stirring tale of loyalty and bravery, superbly illustrated" Shelf Life
