The Last Wolf

by Michael Morpurgo

A spellbinding tale of bravery and loyalty.

Robbie McLeod is on the run from the English Redcoats in the Scottish highlands. On his furtive travels he finds a wolf cub, near a sign proclaiming the killing of the last wolf in Scotland. Identifying at once with the abandoned orphan, Robbie adopts the cub and a unique loyalty grows between them. Eventually Robbie flees his homeland and seeks his fortune in the New World. Has the time come for wolf to find a newer, freer home too?

This is a gem of a story sweeping the reader from the present day to the eighteenth-century and across the Atlantic.
