Nat Carver always wanted a dog. But Woody is way more than he bargained for. Check out Kidzworld’s book review and summary of Wolven by Di Toft.


Telepathy

When Nat’s grandparents offer to buy him a dog, it isn’t really what he had in mind. Instead of a puppy, Woody is big, mangy and covered in dung. And there is something strange about him. Not only is the seller eager to be rid of the dog, but Nat is sure that Woody used mental telepathy to show Nat the terrible fate that awaited him if Nat didn’t take him home.


The Town Bully

It doesn’t take long for Nat and Woody to become best friends. Unfortunately, they become the prime targets of Teddy Davis, the town bully;. Being under Teddy’s watchful eye makes it hard for them to hide Woody’s true identity. You see, Woody isn’t a dog. He’s a wolven.


Reverse Werewolves

Wolven’s are similar to werewolves. But instead of transforming into a wolf during a full moon, Woody does the reverse. He is a wolf that transforms into a human.


Proteus Project

Unfortunately, Teddy Davis is the least of their problems. Members of a government project known as Proteus are after Woody. Originally the project was meant for studying shapeshifters. But an evil man named Dr. Gabriel Gruber has taken over. And his plans for the wolvens are anything but honorable.


The Bottom Line

Wolven by Di Toft is an energetic book filled with death-defying bravery, shady [kwlink 9322[b]villains[/kwlink] and a climactic finish. If you’re a young adult looking for a quick and exciting read, you’ll love Wolven. Especially if you enjoy books about werewolves, underground projects and friendship between pets and their owners.

"AlphaT" wrote: Love. What is it? If we don't know what it is, can we know what it isn't? What does it mean to say that Love is Love? What does it mean for love to "have" something?  The last two questions are what I want to look into in particular. See, many slogans and catchphrases have become progressive icons in the past few years. Examples:  "Love is Love" "Love has no gender"  "Love has no color" and, yes... "Love has no age"  Now, what does it mean to say that Love is Love? In fancy terms, it's a tautology. This just means that the statement affirms that something is itself. "One is equal to one" would be the saying the exact same thing. So, why is this statement often used to support gay marriage? How is "Love is Love" a reason for homosexual people to be wed?  Also, what does it mean to say that Love does not have a gender, or a color? Does love have something else instead of a gender or color? How can love possess a thing? Quoting Chesterton, "Love means loving the unlovable – or it is no virtue at all." Before I even try to answer your question, can you specify whether you're talking about the release of chemicals in our brains that are responsible for the phenomenon of romantic attraction--love--or the desire to do good to one's neighbor sort of love, or something else?
