BOOK REVIEW

HUNTER by Eric Walters
CHILDREN'S
Released: Sept. 1, 2012

"As a companion piece, this may be of interest to readers who enjoyed Walters' previous book; as a plea for humane treatment of feral cats, it's a somewhat clumsy but obviously heartfelt statement; unfortunately, however, it's ultimately less than the sum of its parts. (author's note) (Fiction. 9-12)"
An interesting experiment in collaborative creation and complementary storytelling, this Canadian import falls short as a stand-alone work. Read full book review >
