Genre: young adult, fantasy
Peragrim was his name. An inhuman human sworn to destroy his quarry, three human children – Connor, Evey and Billy. They had been transported to a world ruled by the Wolf People, but Peragrim was waiting for them
Adventure, fantasy, and themes galore in this wild young adult tale.
Connor may be blind, but that doesn’t stop him from “seeing”. Ending up in a wardrobe that leads to another world, Connor and his two companions come face to face with a different hierarchy to theirs…
Striking a good balance between adventure and plot, with good pace, and reasonable tension, this is a fun read. Sure, the characterisation could be stronger, but it has all the ingredients of an enjoyable young adult read…
About the Author

The idea for Wolf Boy came from a dream my daughters used to have when they were small children. The elder daughter would dream there was a wolf in the wardrobe (this is how our adventure begins in Wolf Boy), and my youngest daughter had a dream that a crocodile lived under her bed.
Gerry is married, with two grown-up daughters
