Chronicles of Ancient Darkness #1: Wolf Brother

Chronicles of Ancient Darkness #1: Wolf Brother - Michelle Paver A well written book about a boy, a wolf, and the bear-demon they must defeat. Michelle Paver's research was exhaustive and her descriptions of the natural setting incredible. I read this book with my 8-year-old, and honestly I wasn't all that motivated to continue, though he seemed to be surprisingly so (even though he fell asleep many nights while I read to him), to the point that when we finished he suggested we read it over again. That said, we may have to pick up the second book in the series (perhaps after we cleanse the palette first with some Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Animorphs).
