Simon Thorn and The Wolf's Den by Aimee Carter - ESSENTIAL

Carter, Aimee Simon Thorn and The Wolf's Den, 307 pages.  Bloomsbury Publishing 2016. $16.99.  Language: G (0 swears, 0 "f"); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

Simon Thorn lives with his Uncle Darryl in a small apartment in New York City.  He has spent the first twelve years of his life being told to stay away from animals.  But for Simon, that hasn't been easy to do.  Simon can talk to animals.  When a golden eagle appears outside his window and tells Simon he is in danger, Simon's whole world is turned upside down.  

For fans of series like the Menagerie or Spirit Animals, Simon Thorn and the Wolf's Den is sure to be a big hit!  I loved this book!  Aimee Carter has created a unique blend of likable characters that are sent on an epic adventure.  With a great plot twist and a hint of where the story is headed in the next installment, this is one book I will be adding to my own library.
