Two Wolves by Tristan Bancks
Ben is busy in his room creating a new stop-motion film when a knock at the door changes his life forever. When he finds two police officers looking for his parents, Ben’s passion for becoming a detective kicks in. As soon as the police leave, his parents arrive home, claiming they are going on a holiday and grabbing Ben and his sister before heading off. As they travel to an old cabin in the woods, Ben slowly starts to piece little bits together as to what has happened and what exactly it is his parents have done. The problem is, if Ben is right, should he go to the police, or help his family?
I’m a huge fan of Tristan Bancks’s Mac Slater books and was excited to read his new one – it doesn’t disappoint. Two Wolves is a fantastic, suspenseful novel for readers aged 11 and up, and a book that will keep them reading well into the night!
