Into the Wild: Wolf Girl 1
Anh Do, Allen & Unwin, July 2019


About the book

I crawled onto the bank and collapsed, exhausted.
From the dirt, I looked up in amazement at four dogs staring down at me.
Was I dreaming? Had I gone mad? It all seemed very real.
‘You guys saved me!’ I said, as I sat up in my dripping clothes. ‘I owe you.’

When disaster separates Gwen from her family, she must fend for herself, all alone in the wilderness. 

Luckily, she’s not alone for long … When a wolf puppy, a labrador, a chihuahua, and a greyhound want to make friends, Gwen discovers talents she didn’t know she possessed. 

It will take all her new skills and strength just to survive. Does Gwen have what it takes to be leader of the pack?

‘I’m incredibly excited to bring you ‘Wolf Girl’. It’s my new action-adventure series starring Gwen and her wonderful pack of dogs … and one wolf!’ says Anh. ‘Writing stories that inspire children to read is something I love doing. I hope ‘Wolf Girl’ takes them to exciting new places and gives readers as much enjoyment as I’ve had writing it.’
