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.


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.

Both of the candidates are horrible in my opinion. As to who will win, there's no questions asked, Hillary will win. To me, it's very obvious at this point. Good thing she will only be in office for four years, because there's not a chance that she wins two elections in a row.

"Wishyouweremehehe" wrote:Since the baby isn't fully developed at that point it can not feel, learn, think, remember etc. so aborting it up until that point is completely harmless cause the baby has yet to know anything its basically just a wad of cells like a tumor till about 6 months in term.  First off, thank you for the dedicated comment. I hope you'll be okay if my response is also as lengthy.  Secondly, most of what you said is false. By week sixteen of pregnancy, the baby's nervous system is developing. By the eighteenth week, the head can be distinguished from the rest of the body. At week 22, the baby's lungs are functioning correctly, the baby has hair, the baby can hear and distinguish sounds, and can also suck their thumb. Finally, by week 25, the nervous system is fully connected from the brain to the rest of the body.  An abortion at the end of six months would be at the 26th week of pregnancy.  "Wishyouweremehehe" wrote:Aborting a baby in those months is literally like throwing away an egg that happened to grow No, it would be like breaking the egg and ripping the baby bird inside limb from limb...which is what an abortion is. The baby is in an egg, and then it's shredded and sucked out. It's not wrong to throw away the egg of a chicken, just as it's not wrong to eat a hen. However, we can agree that it is wrong to eat a human being. Clearly, there's a big difference between humans and animals, so you can't make these sorts of analogies.  "Wishyouweremehehe" wrote: in the United States thousands of people go bankrupt from medical bills including bills for child birth (which is ridiculous I don't think anyone should be charged for giving birth, thank god for canada's medical system) and that can put the mother out on the street homeless with a baby Thousands of people go bankrupt from medical bills if they have a very sick child, that doesn't give them a right to kill their kid does it?  "Wishyouweremehehe" wrote:Having a baby isn't a good option for everyone, think about girls in school or college who get forced or whose partner convinces them not to use protection and then run out on them? If a woman is forced into pregnancy, I find it a moral disaster. I think that the father should be brought to justice. But, the mother still has the responsibility of being a mother, no matter how fair or unfair it may be for her. The responsibility has been thrust upon her, it should not have been, but killing a child to unburden the mother is just as unjustified as the #### itself.  Now, if a woman is convinced into not using protection, then it is her choice to shoulder the consequences. She consented.  "Wishyouweremehehe" wrote:. And what about Mothers who just don't want that stress on their body? Cause birth is painful and exhausting and it can physically change a person. Then they should not have chosen to get pregnant in the first place, of if they were forced, then killing a child is still not a justifiable means to end her discomfort.  "Wishyouweremehehe wrote:And what of the girls who it would possibly die when giving birth ? Then a doctor should determine which human life is more viable, and make every effort to save that life.  "Wishyouweremehehe wrote:I strongly believe that no one should be able to force a person to something with their own body that they don't want to, now I don't exactly recommend abortion but I believe a woman would know when its a good time or not for her to have a baby. And by "their own body", you're referring to the body inside a mother, right? See, there's another living being inside of the mother, and what she does with her body effects her son/daughter directly.  Also, what do you mean by a "good time" to have a baby? That's so subjective. You want to hinge a baby's life on how a mother feels?  "Wishyouweremehehe" wrote:If a man can walk out of a pregnancy so can a woman. Sorry, but that's just not true, for the very fact that a man doesn't get pregnant and a woman does. The situations are different.
