Kids’ Club Review by Gaurav: Sticking with pigs

Sticking with pigsSticking with pigs, Mary-Anne Scott

This book’s name suggests some thing way different than what it really is. It was surprisingly and amazingly written by Mary-Anne Scott. This book is a very good example of what people do in hunting. I loved reading it and felt as if I myself was Wolf. This book had a great account on hunting. My favourite character was Wolf and I didn’t like Smithie that much. The best part was of how Jem and Wolf hunted the Pig and the rescue truck of Smithie’s was so cool. This book can be a tad bit scary at parts and some make you feel you are Wolf. I really suggest anyone above 8 or 9 to read this book. This book can really relate to any hunter’s life except for Wolf’s family’s condition.

5 stars
