The Wolf Hour by Sara Lewis Holmes (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Sep 23, 2017 at 1:26pm

The Puszcza is a magical forest where even the darkest fairy tales are real. People say if you go in the Puszcza in the wolf hour you may never come back. The Wolf Hour is about a girl Magia, a wolf named Martin, and a witch named Miss Grand. Magia is a girl who wants to be a woodcutter like her father, Martin is a talking wolf, and Miss Grand is a strange witch who makes weird flutes that are supposed to keep you safe from the Puszcza. When Magia’s Tata buy’s Magia’s mom a clock from Miss Grand because she was very sick, she suddenly gets better. When Magia sets the clock a bit earlier to go into the Puszcza her mom and her siblings don’t wake up again and she needs a key to fix the clock so they will wake up again, but Miss Grand has the key. Will Magia’s mom and siblings wake up again? Find out by reading The Wolf Hour!

I think this is a good book because it teaches you a lesson. The lesson is, even if something seems really cool and is really tempting to, if it seems bad you shouldn’t do it because you could end up in an unpleasant situation, or something bad could happen to you. In this book, the Puszcza is that dreadful thing. If you go in you become mad and you might never return. I didn’t really understand what was happening though. It was like, one thing happens then a whole lot of different things happen. So, I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.

Welcome, my little lambs, to the Puszcza. It's an ancient forest, a keeper of the deepest magic, where even the darkest fairy tales are real.Here, a Girl is not supposed to be a woodcutter. Or be brave enough to walk alone.Here, a Wolf is not supposed to love to read. Or be curious enough to meet a human.And here, a Story is nothing like the ones you read in books, for the Witch can make the most startling tales come alive. All she needs is a Girl from the village, a Wolf from the forest, and a woodcutter with a nice, sharp axe.So take care, little lambs, if you step into these woods. For in the Puszcza, it is always as dark as the hour between night and dawn -- the time old folk call the Wolf Hour. If you lose your way here, you will be lost forever, your Story no longer your own.You can bet your bones.
