At 148 pages, it can be finished at one go easily and thank God for that, because otherwise the mystery of what actually happens in the book would keep haunting you if you left it halfway. The story about three friends – Madhu, Gaurav and Sunil who are on a school trip to Chikmaglur with their classmates and their teacher, Rajesh sir is masterfully woven with the right blend of teen lingo and everyday phrases, which is so important for books in the YA genre.
What was planned as two days of fun, hiking, and adventure quickly goes downhill as the teenagers realise that they are being stalked by a bloodthirsty wolf. But why does he only stalk them and not kill them? And how did a wolf turn up in the area decades later? And why is he scaring the teens who have done him no harm and are only out to enjoy themselves?
Saying anything more about the story would be like giving out spoilers, so I’ll just say that it’s a great suspenseful read about the adventure of a lifetime that the teens find themselves in and the way it’s been ended – there’s a strong hint there of a part 2, maybe!
Above all this, the book resonated with me because in the middle of the thrill, suspense, drama and adventure – we have strong messages being put across beautifully. Messages of friendship, of loyalty, of standing up for the people you believe it, of owning your mistakes and taking responsibility for them and also human apathy towards wild animals – even though we have been taking their homes away from them for ages.
Published by Speaking Tiger, “The Legend of the Wolf” is a masterful play of words by Andaleeb. I hope she continues to enthral young readers with this kind of writing in many more books (since there is a dearth of YA novel writers in this genre) – if it gets them to take up reading it will be great!
