The Winter Wolf sees nine-year-old Amelia exploring an old house and, while avoiding a dog, she stumbles upon an old diary written by a boy in 1873. The boy, Noah, is trying to look after a wolf pup he finds after its mother is injured, and Amelia somehow ends up transported into the diary and back in time! She meets Noah and baby wolf Frost, and is integral to saving the pup's life.
Holly Webb's writing is so brilliant, especially for children. There's an innocence to her stories that reminded me of Enid Blyton (my childhood favourite), and I can see from her many books that she's almost as prolific as the great creator of The Famous Five. I instantly liked Amelia and also related to her - I was knocked over by a big dog when I was little and ever since then I've always been wary and a little bit scared of them. Amelia faces her fears throughout the book, and makes such a huge difference to Noah's and Frost's lives.
I didn't expect this book to take the turn that it did, transporting Amelia back in time, but I loved that aspect of it. It's all so easy to believe from the way Webb describes the surroundings and differences to now (a girl wearing trousers!), and I enjoyed learning a little bit about what life would have been like then. I also knew nothing about wolf cubs before reading this, so gaining some knowledge on that subject was great too.
The Winter Wolf is recommended for anyone who likes animal stories, lovely writing and books perfect for the upcoming winter months. I'll certainly be seeking out more of Holly Webb's novels, and I urge you all to do the same.
My daughter has read six out of the eight Maisie Hitchens books written by Holly Webb & is looking forward to reading this book too.
When Amelia goes to stay at the house of a distant relative she finds his diary and gets transported back to the time when he rescued a wolf cub and tries to reunite it with its mother. Amelia sets out to help, but first has too overcome her fear of dogs.
