Year 6 Book Event - 14th November 2023
🌲🌲🌲🐻🌲 Wolf Brother 🌲🐺🌲🌲🌲
Year 6 had a brilliant time at their Wolf Brother book event!
They used clues to find the signs for the different clans whilst trying not to wake the demon bear. They had to make sure that the bear couldn't smell the hotdogs that were consumed beforehand or see the vibrant, clan face paint!
‘Wolf Brother’ Michelle Paver
Evoking ancient superstition and folk myth, the first of Paver’s atmospheric fantasy saga pits an adolescent boy against a malevolent spirit cast in the form of a giant bear. An immersive melding of prehistory and dark magic, Wolf Brother is scintillating world-building of the highest order.
Thousands of years ago, the land is one dark forest. Its people are hunter-gatherers. They know every tree and herb and they know how to survive in a time of enchantment and powerful magic. Until an ambitious and malevolent force conjures a demon: a demon so evil that it can be contained only in the body of a ferocious bear that will slay everything it sees, a demon determined to destroy the world.
Only one boy can stop it - 12-year-old Torak, who has seen his father murdered by the bear. With his dying breath, Torak's father tells his son of his burden. He must lead the bear to the mountain of the World Spirit and beg that spirit's help to overcome it.
A terrifying quest in a world of wolves, tree spirits and Hidden People, a world in which trusting a friend means risking your life.
