Wild Paws: Book Reviews

The Wild Paws series by Susan Hughes is a set of books starring Maxine Kearney, who loves wild animals. She and her BFF Sarah volunteer at Wild Paws and Claws Clinic and Rehabilitation Centre, where they help rescue animals in need. These are their stories.


Bobcat Rescue

Maxine finds a baby bobcat alone in the woods and names it Tuffy. With her family’s help, she brings it to Wild Paws. Can the centre’s director, Abbie, care for the cub until it can look after itself?


Lonely Wolf Pup

Two mysterious figures drop a young wolf pup caught in a trap off at Wild Paws. The pup is scared and alone, but not hurt. The centre staff must find the pup’s wolf pack before it moves on without him. But the only way to do that is to figure out who dropped the pup off at the centre in the first place.


Bunnies in Trouble

A spring blizzard blows in and Wild Paws gets an emergency call about an injured snowshoe hare and her baby. Knowing there are probably other babies out in the cold, Maxine and her friends at the centre have to help the mother hare fast – or else the baby bunnies will starve without her.


Orphaned Beluga

Maxine’s grandma invites her granddaughter and Sarah on a trip to see real beluga whales in the wild. But when they hear about an orphaned beluga in trouble, they need to figure out a way to help save him before he gets trapped in a dam that’s being built across his river home.


Cubs All Alone

Maxine and Sarah rescue two orphaned bear cubs, and they immediately fall in love with the two cuddly cubs. But then they find out that bears can’t stay at the Wild Paws shelter … what will happen to the two orphaned twins?

    When I was younger I used to order a McChicken sandwich with two apple pies and a small coke with a happy meal. Now I order it without the happy meal. I'm dying for the McRib to come back, it's my favorite food there. Today,it doesn't really matter what I order at McDonald's. The food there is unhealthily tasty.

    You are the light in my eye, My wings that make me fly, The beat to my heart that feels so right, Nothing will tear us apart, You are my angel sent from above, You have given me all of you're love, And I can not thank you enough for that, Thank you for your time,  I am sooooo happy that # ### #### you all mine  My number one priority? That's you.  There is not one thing I wouldn't do,  just to see you your cheeks rise ,  up to those two beautiful green eyes,  Don't worry about cheating, hurting, or lies,  because baby I am never going to make you cry,  and if you ever do I promise to wipe them dry  To my sole mate, lover, and best friend,  I want you to know I am here until the very end.
