Howling in "the Beyond"
on March 24, 2012
My 8-year old grandson loves this series! I read the books as well, and found them an engaging tale of the travails of a young wolf cub, was left to die because of deformity. The author uses a lot of Celtic-styled words through the story and my only complaint was that one wolfish curse ( in a dialog reminiscent of Patton's famous speach just before D-day) that was far too close to a common English "cleaned-up" version of his actual word that is commonly used in impolite conversations. I sent the author an email, and she immediately responded, offering to chat with me by phone. We had a good discussion and she hadn't thought about the similarity, promising to avoid that in future titles.
I was amazed to actually get a reply, and it was from the author , not some staffer! A big 2 thumbs up for integrity!
