Sarah MacQueen, October 3, 2012 (view all comments by Sarah MacQueen)
I returned to this childhood favorite of mine in honor of Banned Books Week, and found it a much more complex story than I remembered. Though the writing is obviously aimed at children, the ideas and information are for anyone. Julie runs away to escape an uncomfortable home situation, intending to go to San Fransisco where her pen pal lives. Instead, she gets lost on the tundra. There she finds and befriends a wolf pack for survival. Then, as winter comes she must decide whether to follow the way of the eskimo or accept the world of the white men.

Working at the Children's desk at the library, I'm trying to read the Newbery award winners. Julie of the Wolves won in 1973 for good reason. I really enjoyed it. It is a wonderful tale of a girl on her own in the wilderness. Her struggles for food and companionship lead her to relationship with wolves. The story feels very real. I am eager to put this book into the hands of children here at the library. Especially good for anyone who loved My Side of the Mountain.

"Synopsis" by , A mesmerizing debut middle-grade novel about a boy, a girl, and a dog struggling to survive in an African land after the water has run out.
"Synopsis" by , In this haunting, lyrical novel told from three perspectives, Sarel has just witnessed the violent murder of her parents. But she is not completely alone on the drought-ridden land. Nandi is the leader of a pack of dogs who looks out for her pups and for skinny Sarel-girl. Nandi knows they are all in trouble, and she knows, too, that a boy is coming—an escaped prisoner with the water song inside him. A hard-hitting but ultimately hopeful survival story.
"Synopsis" by ,
From the most celebrated childrens nature writer of our time comes a posthumous new novel in the tradition of her Newbery award-winning Julie of the Wolves

In 1848 in Barrow, Alaska, a young Eskimo boy witnesses a rare sight—the birth of a bowhead, or ice whale, that he calls Siku. But when he unwittingly guides Yankee whalers to a pod of bowhead whales, all the whales are killed. For this act, the boy receives a curse of banishment. Through the generations, this curse is handed down. Siku, the ice whale, returns year after year, in reality and dreams, to haunt each descendant. The curse is finally broken when a daughter recognizes and saves the whale, and he in turn saves her. Told in alternating voices, both human and whale, Jean Craighead Georges last novel is an ambitious and touching take on the interconnectedness of humans, animals, and the earth they depend on.
