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?
