Anh Do is no stranger to the world of kids books – in fact, he’s a certified children’s book whiz! The bestselling author of the hilarious WeirDo, HotDog! and Ninja Kid series, is back with a brand new series called Wolf Girl, one of three new ones to be published with Allen & Unwin Australia.
This is an exciting adventure series for kids who are a little bit older. Into the Wild is the first book and it introduces readers to Gwen, a girl who learns how to fend for herself after being separated from her family by a disaster. Plucky and resourceful, Gwen soon falls in with her very own pack – quite literally! She befriends a wolf puppy, a labrador, a chihuahua, and a greyhound, who all help her get back on her feet while trying to avoid even bigger trouble…
The action literally never stops in this book, and Gwen is one tough and lovable cookie. A few people at Booktopia have been lucky enough to read an advance copy of Wolf Girl: Into the Wild and have nothing but high praise for this feisty new heroine. Sarah McDuling, our Kids & YA category manager, says, “This is such a fast-paced thrill ride that will keep younger readers on the edge of their seats! Gwen is a very brave and heroic girl who faces every challenge with great strength and resilience!”
In a statement from earlier this year, Anh said, “I’m incredibly excited to bring you Wolf Girl. It’s my new action-adventure series starring Gwen and her wonderful pack of dogs… and one wolf! Writing stories that inspire children to read is something I love doing. I hope Wolf Girl takes them to exciting new places and gives readers as much enjoyment as I’ve had writing it.”
Wolf Girl: Into the Wild is out on 1 July, and for a limited time only you can pre-order a SIGNED copy (hurry – these signed copies won’t last long!).
