Revue de presse :

Wolf Brother is the kind of story you dream of reading and all too rarely find...The descriptions of an ancient world... are wonderful. The vivid prose leaps off the page. (Amanda Craig The Times, 21 Aug 04)

Epic adventure ( Publishing News, 14 May 04)

Deeply Atmospheric... breathtakingly expansive, classically formed adventure story. ( The Bookseller Buyer's Guide Highlights, Autumn 04)

Michelle Paver...writes in a clear, engaging style...The relationships and setting are persuasively described. (Nicolette Jones, Children's Book of the Week The Sunday Times, 22 Aug 04)

a rattling read (Claire Armitstead The Guardian, 3 Sep 04)

The opening of the novel is gripping in every sense... There is plenty of page turning drama in the story... taut and ever compelling ( Books for Keeps, Sep 04)

a terrific new book... a super fantasy story... beautifully produced ( Haverhill Echo, 9 Sep)

Wolf Brother... provides the most impressive beginning of a series set thousands of years ago... touching but never sentimental... immensely rich and compelling (Lindsey Fraser The Sunday Herald, 5 Sep 04)

a fast-paced adventure that explores the themes of honour, loyalty, trust and survival... detailed and evocative... a thoroughly entertaining read. ( Dreamwatch Magazine, Oct 04)

"A beautifully crafted story, it illuminates some of the big conundrums: the nature of evil; man's stewardship of nature; the force of jealousy and greed; the power of self-giving for the good of others... Michlle Paver has produced a thrilling narrative with authentic flavour founded on thorough research. The text well-honed and rhythmic, and moves with terrific pace; a haunting and heroic adventure with appeal for boys and girls of 10 and above". (Elaine Williams TES)

fantastically detailed descriptions of forest living... the description of Torak's desperate struggle is excellent, as is the handling of the touching relationship between him and his wolf-cub companion. ( The Herald, 25 Sep 04)

"Michelle Paver is undoubtably a writer of rare passion, imagination and enthusiasm" ( Liverpool Echo, 28 Sep 04)

"A rollicking, easy read" ( Daily Telegraph, 4 Oct 04)

a thrilling, visceral read... Paver's passion and enthusiasm for the period... will keep readers hooked and waiting eagerly for the next in the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series ( Scotsman, 16 Oct 04)

"An action packed, atmospheric story full of thrills with many touching and breath taking moments. Good news, it's the first of a series." ( Primary Times, Oct/Nov 04)

...an imaginative reconstruction...in which magic is the only explanation of the unknown, excitingly told, the setting lingers in the memory ( Independent, 15 Oct 04)

"Wolf Brother is a thrilling story of friendship and betrayal that takes you back to the great forests of Europe 6,000 years ago." ( Evening Press (York), 13 Oct 04)

"Wolf Brother is prehistoric, and its folkloric, mystical motifs are of a pleasingly earthy hue, not in the least bit fey." (Hepzibah Anderson Observer, 24 Oct 04)

"WOLF BROTHER gripped me from the very first page. It has the three qualities of a classic children's book. Attractive characters. Relentless pace. And superb writing. Added to which, it explores a world that was virtually unknown to us with real insight and authority. This really is a book that stands out from the crowd." (Anthony Horowitz, author)

"the isolations from the modern world is a breath of fresh air, making Wolf Brother a very innocent and engagaing read" ( Independent on Sunday, 28 Nov 04)

"I would recommend this book to anyone of all ages - it is a truly great read and an all-round fabulous book!" ( Lincolnshire Echo, 30 Nov 04)

a marvellous epic quest... wild adventure interlaced by myth and mysticism ( Northern Echo, 30 Nov 04)

"a well-earthed and transcendent fable, a page-turner for children and adults alike." ( Northern Earth, Winter 04)

an utterly gripping Bronze Age quest... written with compelling economy and detail. ( New Statesman, 29 Nov 04)

A beautifully crafted story... Michelle Paver has produced a thrilling narrative with authentic flavour founded on thorough research... The text is well-honed and rhythmic, and moves with terrific pace; a haunting and heroic adventure ( TES, 10 Dec 04)

"Wolf Brother is an enchanting book. Michelle has created a world that we have not seen before in any previous film". (Ridley Scott The Times, 22 Jan 05)

'...one of 2004's most notable debuts...' (Giles Elliott CHILDREN'S BOOKSELLER (AUG 05))

'...the best children's novel to be published in 2004...' (Amanda Craig SATURDAY TIMES 10.09.05)

'packed with mythology, magic and more... Well researched and beautifully written.' (Wendy Cooling CHILD EDUCATION)

'Paver's persuasive writing, exciting story and detailed research all come together in WOLF BROTHER to create an exciting, atmospheric page-turner that works well... A terrific read.' (John Millen SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST)

'This is a tale you can really claw into.. You'll be howling for a sequel!' (Joanthan Weir (Age 15) THE GUARDIAN - EDUCATION (Young Critics))

'Wolf Brother, with its pin-prick sharp detail of survival in the forests of long ago, is a story which takes you right into the world it describes; it was much enjoyed for its mythical qualities and the strength of its characters.' (Julia Eccleshare LOOK AT A BOOK (The Guardian))

'I'd definitely get my friends to read this book!' (Sophie Clemie TEEN TITLES)

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Thousands of years ago the land is one dark forest. Its people are hunter-gatherers. They know every tree and herb and they know how to survive in a time of enchantment and powerful magic. Until an ambitious and malevolent force conjures a demon: a demon so evil that it can be contained only in the body of a ferocious bear that will slay everything it sees, a demon determined to destroy the world.
Only one boy can stop it - 12 year old Torak, who has seen his father murdered by the bear. With his dying breath, Torak's father tells his son of the burden that is his. He must lead the bear to the mountain of the World Spirit and beg that spirit's help to overcome it.
Torak is an unwilling hero. He is scared and trusts no one. His only companion is a wolf cub only three moons old, whom he seems to understand better than any human.
Theirs is a terrifying quest in a world of wolves, tree spirits and Hidden People, a world in which trusting a friend means risking your life.
Launched at the height of the Harry Potter phenomenon, the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness is the ultimate magical adventure. Audio edition also available, read by Ian McKellen.
