georgie from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

Do you like thriller books? or maybe books about animals? if you do this book is for you. I have rated this book 10/10 because of its adventure and a bit of mystery. I would recommend this book too 5-15 year olds because it does have the slightest bit of violence but is mainly adventure. This book is also sad because the main character (Feo) experiences things she shouldn't really experience in her journey as she is only 12. My favourite character has too be either Feo or Iyla because of their nature and personalities! Feo is a very feisty, violent girl whereas Iyla loves dancing. They are not really very stereotypical. Anyway I really enjoyed this book!!!

Wiktoria from Year 8, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

This book was well written and had an interesting story but the blurb didn't say much about it. Also some characters could have had more backstory and it was annoying how the bad guy never dies but a wolf does.

Methnuli from Year 5, Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Primary School:

I liked this book a lot, it was scary, heartbreaking and exiting at the same time. Katherine Rundell has changed the way we think about wolfs, people think they are vicious, angry and fearless. But they fear more about humans than we fear about them. In this story Feodora and her mother, Marina make wolves wild and untamed them so they could hunt for themselves instead of begging to the nasty, rich people. The wolves will help you in many things if you be kind to them, so join Feodora and Marina in thier adventure and read the book( you'll like it!)

charley from Year 7, Ridgewood School:

This book is exceptionally written with the best plot imaginable. I have never read a book that is so captivating while also including aspects of traditional literature. Wonderful! All characters are amazingly relatable and non of which follow set gender stereotype but rather their own individual personalities. This books plot is super enjoyable and is consistently making me smile. I would definitely recommend this book to people who love animals and thrillers. This story of heartbreak, sorry and grand victory will forever live in my heart as one of the best!

Tasha from Year 7, Ridgewood School:

When the 12 year old Wolf Wilder, Feo , meets a soldier called Ilya she is questioning if she can actually trust him. Would you trust a soldier that comes from an army who have just taken your mother and are now coming for you? I know I wouldn't however does Feo? Find out in this captivating, relatable, intriguing book. Throughout, I was laughing, smiling and almost crying with sadness and horror. Did I mention crying with laughter? This captivating book is so unique however Katherine Rundell makes it like a classic. I loved this book and I recommend it to all people ready for a shock. Its fantastic. You need to read it. And fast!

jayden from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

This book - The Wolf Wilder - was not as good as some other books I have read. It is about a girl, who is called Feo, three wolves, called Grey, Black and White, a soldier, called Ilya and the children of the village. Feo's mother is locked up in a prison in St Petersburg by General Rakov and Feo, the wolves, and the children of the village go on a journey to rescue Feo's mother in St Petersburg. I didn't like it because it went on forever and it didn't have many illustrations in it.

Olivia from Year 9, The Armthorpe Academy:

The wolf wilder is set in Russia at the beginning of the revolution. The story revolves around Feo a young girl who is a wolf wilder and her mother, who too is a wolf wilder. Wolf wilders take on wolves who have been kept by the Russian Aristocracy as a staus symbol, when the wolve for get they are wolves and step out of line they are sent to a wold wilder. The job of the wilder is to train the wolves to become the wonderful wild animals they once were. Feo has an affinity with wolves, alough she hac had a few bites and scares bestowed upon her in her young life. This is an adventure story which is descriptive and i particularly liked the sense of bleakness and wilderness. I think General Rakov's character is appropriately written and you really feel his madness and ruthlessness. For me this is a modern twist on a Brothers Grimm style fairytale......a good book but not my favourite.

Emma from Year 7, Rossington All Saints School:

The Wolf Wilder is a very interesting and suspenseful book. The characters and the setting is genius that t is set in Russia. Also, the story behind the wolf wilder's is fascinating. The detail that Katherine Rundell puts in the story is magical. I do recommend this to any who want to read a thrilling book.

Paige from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

Do you love mysterious books? Then this is the book for you. I loved Wolf Wilder because it was interesting and made my want to read it whenever I could. It was different to most books I read because I don't usually read books like that. I rated it a 10 out of 10 because it was full of unique and amazing words that I didn't understand at first. My favourite character was grey the wolf because he was brave strong and fierce. It is about a girl called Feo and her mum who are wolf wilders and have three fierce wolves that protect them.

Elliot from Year 6, Montagu School, Mexborough:

The book is enjoyable it can be exiting at some times but not all the time. Once I picked the book up I thought Katherine Rundell had been very creative with making Feo and her mother un-tame the wolves. I enjoyed the story and would recommend it to others.

This book was well written and had an interesting story but the blurb didn't say a lot about it. Also some characters could have had more backstory and it was annoying how the bad guy never dies but a wolf does. I wouldn't like to read a book like this again because it bad and good at the same time and I don't like books like this.

Do you like a book with adventure? Then this is the book for you. I really enjoyed this book its full of adventure and cute animals. My favourite character is Feo ( Feodora ) because is really brave and never gives ups. I rated this book 8 because it got a bit boring but I enjoyed it a lot. I would recommend this book for 10 to 12 because some bits younger ones wont understand. Feo's mum is really kind but Feo and her mum actually help injured and little wolves.

Keaton from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

This book was mostly scary because when Rakov took Feodora's mum you would think that Rakov would want to kill Feo's mum. My favourite character is Ilya because he likes to dance but Rakov takes him as a soldier in his army. The reason why I like this character is because he is exciting and I love dancing. Overall my favourite part was when Feo goes to the prison where her mum is kept and she finally meets her mum again.
