Synopsis

Lone Wolf by Alan Gibbons, Robbie Gibbons

He saw it in flashes: a shadow of prickly fur, the gleam of teeth. The sight of it snatched the breath from Danny's lungs. He knew what the creature was. He thought they had died out in Britain hundreds of years ago, but there was no doubt about it. He was looking into the yellow eyes of a wolf. People have been going missing in the town. But Danny's got something else on his mind: how to avoid Carver and his gang. Running away from them into the dark woods beyond the estate, he meets something even more frightening... *Help Key Stage 3 students move from Level 3a to Level 4c in reading.*Support comprehension with the graphic novel style illustrations.*Encourage shared and guided reading using the ready-made tasks and discussion points on the activity pages at the back of the book.
