Read full description of the books:
I think everyone has that one book they read as a teenager that got them really into reading. "Cry of the Wolf" was mine.
I decided to read it again as I hadn't read it in over 10 years and I still love it. It's a great novella which focuses on the last wolves in England. The wolves don't communicate to each other in words like "Watership Down" but through movement, emotion and scent. There's a magic to it and the wolves precious lives feel more realistic because of it.
The story follows the last wolves in England, not quite extinct but almost. Due to a boy (Ben) letting slip to a hunter that there are wolves left in England, the hunter makes it his mission to get them all. The story follows one of the last wolf packs, mainly Greycub, as they try to outmaneuver the hunter.
It's a quick story and a good story. I would highly recommend getting it if you get the chance.

Read information about the authorMelvin Burgess is a British author of children's fiction. His first book, The Cry of the Wolf, was published in 1990. He gained a certain amount of notoriety in 1996 with the publication of Junk, which was published in the shadow of the film of Irvine Welsh's Trainspotting, and dealt with the trendy and controversial idea of heroin-addicted teenagers. Junk soon became, at least in Britain, one of the best-known children's books of the decade.
Burgess again courted predictable controversy in 2003, with the publication of Doing It, which dealt with underage sex. America created a show based on the book, Life As We Know It. In his other books, such as Bloodtide and The Ghost Behind the Wall, Burgess has dealt with less realist and sometimes fantastic themes. In 2001 Burgess wrote the novelisation of the film Billy Elliot, based on Lee Hall's screenplay. Polyphony is typical for his most famous novels.
