The Lovereading4Kids comment
Highly commended for the Carnegie Medal.
It was a mistake for Ben to tell the Hunter that there were still wolves in Surrey. For the Hunter was a fanatic, always on the lookout for unusual prey. Driven by an ambition to wipe out the last English wolves, the Hunter set out on a savage quest. But what happens when the Hunter becomes the hunted?
The Cry of the Wolf by Melvin Burgess
'A writer of the highest quality with exceptional powers of insight' - Sunday Times
'A Dickens of the future.' - Michael Rosen
'A disturbing book, but of real quality; you will applaud the end.' - Observer
‘So powerfully written that we had to include it. The characterisation of the wolves was masterful.’ Carnegie judges
‘If a children’s author like Burgess didn’t exist, we would most definitely have to invent him’
