FABULOUS FINISH: Wabi: A Hero's Tale



Wabi: A Hero's Tale
by Joseph Bruchac
Dial Books, 2006. 198 p.

The white great horned owl, Wabi, discovers he is not like other owls. Not only is he larger and more intelligent but he also has magic abilities, one of which, is the ability to understand and speak the language of any animal--including human. Wabi soon finds himself reluctantly caring for an orphaned wolf pup--and after accidentally falling in love with a human girl--he secretly becomes the guardian of her tribe, protecting them against some of the terrifying, magical monsters of American Indian lore. A little cocky, but still goodhearted, Wabi is an extremely likable character whose outside observations of the human world are laugh-out-loud funny at times. Those who like Wolf Brother and the Guardian's of Ga'Hoole series will absolutely adore this action-packed book.
