Howling Timberwolves Series by Sigmund Brouwer

I received a pleasant surprise in the mail today. Leslie at Orca Book Publishers sent me a package of hockey themed children's titles you should be made aware of before you complete your Christmas shopping.

Orca Book Publishers
is a Canadian children's book publisher out of Victoria, putting out approximately 60 new books each year, including some great hockey series.

Perhaps the most successful line is The Howling Timberwolves series by best selling author Sigmund Brouwer. The books are all early chapter books for beginning readers, ages 7 through 9. The plots all revolve around the Timberwolves hockey team in the tiny town of Howling.

The series is perfect for the hockey loving youth in your life, especially if they are reluctant readers. The books are easy to read and fun and full of humour that kids will love, but also full of positive messages parents will love.

There have been two new additions to the series in 2009. Book 6, Timberwolf Tracks, was released in the spring, while Timberwolf Rivals has just been released here in November.

Previous releases in the series include Timberwolf Revenge, Timberwolf Chase, Timberwolf Hunt, Timberwolf Trap, and Timberwolf Challenge.

It should be noted the original five titles were all illustrated by Dean Griffiths, while Graham Ross has picked up the line without missing a beat beginning with book six.

Teachers and school librarians should note that the author is available for school visits. He loves talking to children about reading and writing with his high energy presentations aimed at getting children dreaming big and reading lots.

These books should be in every youth library collection in Canada. If you have a child in the 7-9 age range who likes hockey and may be a bit of reluctant reader, these books should be on your Christmas radar. The jacket price is just $7.
