Sometimes the desire to explore can just get the better of you. That is what happened to Wyld when his family were sent to a remote valley to study the newly bred prehistoric mammals. Those prehistoric creatures weren't the dinosaur kind either but the mammoth and sabre tooth tiger types.
Of course Wyld didn't believe there were creatures like that out there, so while his parents were in another stuffy meeting he thought that he would just take a "little look" outside. That little look resulted in him to discover a fluff-ball of a creature and the pair of them ended up on a Wyld adventure that they could never have imagined.
Like Survivor meets the Truman Show. Great adventure with just the right amount of action. Great for all kids and parents too.
I was provided this free review copy audio book by the author or narrator." This review is for the audio copy of: Wyld: One Mammoth Adventure by Michelle Dry and narrated by David Newbrook. This was a really good pre-teen book. I enjoy listening to this genre with my grandchildren. This one started out quickly and we soon became wrapped up in it. It has a good story line that is unpredictable. I liked the way it was laid out and the progression. The Narrator did a great job of reading it. His inflection, cadence, and timbre made it easy to listen to. It took a bit to get my ear adjusted to his Scottish accent but after a bit was talking with a bit of a burr meself…I recommend this book and narrator.
For every child with an imagination, there's an adventure waiting to come to life. In Wyld: One Mammoth Adventure, Michelle Dry brings the adventure to life for a boy named Wyld and his Science-loving family. Okay, so the kids don't seem too thrilled to be caught up in their parents' new job posting. When they find themselves living in a cave in the wilderness... literally, with no answers forthcoming from their parents, Wyld decides to sneak out into the night, alone. What he finds there is mammoth... a small mammoth. But soon things get hairy. And, that is when the adventure grows beyond Wyld's imagination.
A story for wildlife loving preteens, this book has twists and turns that defy everything you thought was happening. So, be prepared for a changing plot. I requested and received a free review copy of the Audible version, narrated by the youngish sounding David Newbrook. His breathy whispered voice lends the tone of the main character, as if you are hearing the story straight from Wyld himself. I recommend this book for older pre-teens.
