I've always had an interest in wolves and their relationship with Humans, so this book by acclaimed children author Avi would be a good one to check out how he would interpret them. Avi does a fine job on the balance and power within a pack and also catches some nice repartee with some of the other forest animals that feature in this short novella. There is a nice coming of age part to this book, one from an aging wolf who is about to be dethroned from the pack and the tale of a young boy Casey who is on the eve of celebrating his 13th birthday and about to 'become a man/hunter'. Its a nice balance of characters, great storytelling and just the right length to tell the story. I'm not sure of the age group its aimed at but I think a preteen would enjoy it as much as a 13 year old
