This is one for older children and Young Adults (11+) as Kim reads the first chapter of the first book in Michelle Paver’s immensely popular series Chronicles of Ancient Darkness. Torak is alone…wounded, terrified, and on the run. An outcast like his father, he has avoided all contact with the clans. But now his father lies dead: slaughtered by a demon in the form of a great bear. Somehow, Torak must keep going. His only ally is an orphaned wolf cub…. Wolf Brother carries you back thousands of years to the ancient darkness of the Forest: to a world steeped in natural magic and elemental terror – a world in which trusting a friend means risking your life… Kim Squirrell is an artist and owner of Ink and Page in Bridport.
