    1. Another amazing story by Michael MorpurgoThis is a story about the friendship between Robbie MacLeod and Charlie, Scotland's Last Wolf. I liked the book because I enjoy exciting stories about animals. The ending was quite sad but understandable. Robbie had quite a sad life but he was very brave.

    2. This was a quick read with less than 100 pages. I thought it was a nice read and I really liked the way it started and the story about the wolf.

    3. I think that this book is amazing and I recommend it to my friends who haven't read it. The book is about a boy who's parents are killed and he lives with his evil uncle. The boy runs away and becomes a poor person on the street. He steals from markets, shops and farms.One time as he is resting in the farm shed, the farmer comes out and starts to shoot at him. The boy then realises that the farmer is shooting at a wolf. The wolf is killed and a slab is put and it says "the last wolf was killed h [...]

    4. The Last Wolf by Michael Morpurgo is a historical novel set during the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745.

Both Robbie and the wolf cub are in mortal danger - Robbie is fleeing from the slaughter of the battle fields of Culloden Moor, and the wolf from the hunters driving the species to extinction.

    6. I cannot get enough of Michael Morpurgo books and each new title I discover becomes a new friend. This book is an amazing piece of historical fiction as an elderly man, encouraged by his granddaughter's interest in computers, tries to research his family history and stumbles across the most amazing tale, involving among others the last wolf of Scotland and an adventurous journey to America. In classical Michael Morpurgo style, an elaborate author's note provides valuable and interesting backgrou [...]

    7. A great little story. The moment I started I couldn't stop. It has a warm beginning with the Grandfather being introduced to technology and the way the internet shrinks the world and moves quickly on to a story left in a will.I liked this story because family history is very important but the thought of reading something like this with the words being offered by the ancestor themselves is a magical idea. A great book for children with a great mix of struggle, difficulty, forbearance and acceptan [...]

    8. A tale of love, hope and friendship Robbie Mcleod finds a wolf cub and takes care of it, but when a very harsh Winter comes he must try to get a boat to a new land they call America. Will they sucseed or will they be caught. I enjoyed the book because it had some exciting and happy moments.I would recommend the book to boys ages 9-13

    9. This was a nice historical story for younger readers, but I wouldn't rate it as one of Michael Morpurgo's best. It lacked depth and his affinity with animals didn't come through as it usually does in his novels.

    10. awww, what a sweet book. It's sad and beautiful an happy and amazing all in one. Its easy to read and very quick too, I liked the fact that it was short. Tension builds up easily and is written very well. Michael Morpurgo is definitely one of my favourite authors.

    11. What a great little book, the illustrations are lovely, it only took me a couple of hours to read! My only comment would be shame it was a shame it did not have a bit more detail and was a bit longer.

    12. the last wolf is a moving tale of a boy that runs from the town and the red coats when his guardian gets shot by a musket. he then finds an orfaned wolf and they instantly fall in love

    13. Another lovely little read. I'm am really enjoying my browse through the children's bookcases.Would recommend this one.

    14. An AMAZING story, fairly short, and I only read it to help my daughter with it for school, but I am so glad I did. Beautiful. I just hope she enjoys it as much as I did.

    15. A pleasant enough story, but not up to his usual high standard. I particularly liked the way he linked the stories but it lacked the depth of character I normally associate with morpurgo's novels.

    16. I think this would be a great class book, or a hook for a history unit (e.g. British history Jacobite rebellion of 1745).

    17. It was really good. If you are looking for something like this I highly recommend this. It was so sad, but you could understand it.
