9780007118601: Little Wolf, Pack Leader

A fifth novel about this prize-winning wolfcub, illustrated by TONY ROSS.Mum and Dad write to Little Wolf, full of praise for Spoiler, the eldest cub of a neighbour, who has formed The Murkshire RHYWP [Really Harsh Young Wolf Pack]. Determined not to be forced to join their pack, Little and Chums form their own; The Beastshire SPOBBTALOF [Small Pack of Brute Beasts That Have a Load of Fun]. They all pull in different directions and Smells in particular is a pain. Without organisation or real purpose things get messy and they all get a bit snappish. Then comes news that the RHYWP have captured Mr Twister. Stung by this shaming blow, the SPOBBTHALOF elect Little as their pack leader and decide to shape up. Armed with pooled knowledge and camping skills they head off for Murkshire and set up camp. With the aid of a wickerwork Trojan Moose [with Normus inside] and nets, knots, latrine pits, an arksellent communication network, they re-capture Mister Twister for themselves. But in a suprise move, they release their arch-enemy into the wilds. Now Uncle Bigbad is a ghost, they realise that they need one wicked old villain, otherwise they would not have such great adventures.

About the Author:

Ian Whybrow was an English teacher and head of sixth form at the John Lyon school in Harrow for many years but is now a full-time author. He writes picture books and novels, specialising in humorous voices so that adults can get as much fun out of his books as the children they are reading to. Ian is married Ann, a drama teacher in Hounslow and they have two daughters one being the actress Lucy Whybrow. Ian loves walking, cycling, swimming, Herefordshire and the arts in general, particularly the theatre.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-This latest series installment continues with Little Wolf writing letters to his unimpressed parents. Full of misspellings, quirky expressions, and inside jokes, and British in tone, the writing isn't likely to be entirely clear to beginning chapter-book readers. If they persevere, though, they'll find a hero in Little Wolf. Although he doesn't measure up to the macho image that his parents prefer, he manages to outwit Spoiler, leader of The Really Harsh Young Wolf Pack, who is hot on the trail of a rabbit-stealing fox. He succeeds by pulling together a scraggly band of friends and, in the folkloric tradition of the downtrodden, the underdogs overcome their supposedly unbeatable adversaries. And, in the tradition of series fiction, one villain remains at large, to emerge another day. The lighthearted line drawings that appear throughout the pages may help readers interpret the often-confusing prose. The combination of challenging writing with a somewhat childish plot-and a little bathroom humor-makes this an appropriate choice for young but skilled readers.
