9780061704130: The Last Words of Will Wolfkin

It's funny. If you're born a certain way, you don't really understand how it is to be any other way.

So it has been for Toby Walsgrove—paralyzed since birth, unable to move or talk, with no known family, he has spent his entire life at a Carmelite convent in London. That is, until the day that his cat, Shipley, starts talking to him. Shipley has been watching over Toby his whole life and tells him they must go to Langjoskull, a city of exiles buried deep below the surface of Iceland. Because Toby is no ordinary boy—he's a descendant of the great king Will Wolfkin, and his kingdom needs him.

Toby has never wielded a sword that can stop time. He has never shifted into his kin creature. He has never even walked on his own two legs before. Ready or not, though, he has a destiny, a responsibility, even a family—and not all of them are happy to meet him. . . .

About the Author:

Steven Knight is an Oscar-nominated screenwriter. The Last Words of Will Wolfkin is his first book for children.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-8–Adventure, intrigue, true friendship, and new worlds are found under the Icelandic ice. Or is it merely the dream and imagination of a boy trapped in his own body? Knight introduces readers to the world of the Fels, a population that carries ancient, secret magic, currently in need of assistance from two young humans who, unknown to them, are half Fel. Toby, a London boy who was paralyzed at birth and is unable to talk, and Emma, a girl from the Sudan who has witnessed death and cruelty all of her young life, have been transported to Langjoskull to stop the current leader, a bully and potential tyrant, from turning this fantasy land into a horror movie. Treachery, insights into friendship, philosophical discussions, and epic battles ensue, but the end is a return to his useless body for Toby. Was it all a dream? His is an imaginative, truly fascinating entrance to another world. In addition, Knight leaves the door open for a sequel or two.Wendy Smith-D'Arezzo, Loyola College, Baltimore, MD
