Product Description

In the wilds of the Scottish Highlands, Robbie McLeod is on the run from the English Redcoats. On his furtive travels he finds a tiny wolf cub – and a sign proclaiming the killing of the last wolf in Scotland. Feeling an instant bond with the abandoned orphan, Robbie adopts the cub, and a powerful loyalty grows between them. But when Robbie flees his homeland and seeks his fortune in the New World, has the time come for the wolf to find a newer, freer home too? Written by Michael Morpurgo and illustrated by Michael Foreman, this gem of a story sweeps readers from eighteenth century Europe right across the Atlantic.

“A vibrant tale that brings a slice of history to life.” Times Educational Supplement

“Satisfying, thoughtful and ultimately heart-warming.” Financial Times

    This book was set in a world war it was very good to read, it was a book of the last wolf. I would recommend this book to people who like adventurous books. it seems like a real story and quite sad at the end.

    I didn’t like the book because I found it a little bit emotional. I did like the illustrations. This book is perfect for 7 year old on up.

    There was a lot of sadness in this book and for me, I just didn’t like it. As soon as I saw the title and saw it was about an orphan, I didn’t want to read it but my parents asked me to (more like forced me to!). I was glad I did read it as it is different from what I am used to reading.

    It is a good book, but not for me.

    2 out of 5 stars
