Praise for Wolf Road:

‘A wonderful book – exciting, fascinating, gripping, beautifully written’ Anthony McGowan

'Highly atmospheric, this impressive story asks questions about human fears across the ages.' Daily Mail

'When and where would you go if you could go back in time?  I wouldn't hesitate to whizz past all the great civilizations . . . and go straight to the moment our early human ancestors met Neanderthals.  What did they think of each other? How did the communicate? . . . A captivating children's tale that can be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in the origins of humanity.  Paleo-tastic.' Lucy Bannerman, The Times Children's Book of the Week
