    1. I loved this Unsolved Mystery for History series that Jane Yolen has put together. That being said, I think this one is the least kid friendly, mostly because of all the unfamiliar terminology at the beginning and the changing versions of the story. However, an interested child who has read the other books in the series, solve your own mysteries, or who is interested in "feral children" stories, would still enjoy this.


    2. Audience:Elementary 2-5 gradePersonal Appeal: Written like an investigation, the story keeps you interested and thinking. I like the definitions of difficult or unusual words, which can be helpful for introducing new vocabulary. The story line is very different than most picture books that children are used to, it provides information and the reader can decide what they believe. It introduces this concept in a simple and interesting way. Story prep: Definitions and small reports on each page. Il [...]


    3. In 1920, a missionary brought two young girls, ages approximately two and eight, to an orphanage in India. The girls behaved more like wild animals than human children and the man who brought them confessed that they were found in the woods in the care of wolves. You would think this is not a “great mystery of history” and why is this included in this series of historical mysteries by Jane Yolen and Heidi Stemple? However, there are some inconsistencies to the stories about these two wolf gi [...]


    4. I ended up adding an additional star to my rating because The Wolf Girls: An Unsolved Mystery From History utilized the mixed media format to such wonderful effect. Combining historical snippets with questions of authenticity, Yolen crafts an engaging "whodunit?" suitable for elementary school readers. A great way to practice close reading skills, improve vocabulary and hone skills taking in multiple threads of story, The Wolf Girls is worth your time.


    5. Full review at: unleashingreaders/?p=1712This story was fascinating as I had never heard of the wolf girls and came in with no prior knowledge about the mystery. It was so much fun to be full on submerged in the mystery and following the clues that are given throughout the “case notebook”.


    6. A very different type of book, which guides the reader through a sort of problem solving situation. There's no clear resolution, but I found the author's comments leaned against believing the Reverend's story. An interesting way to explore the idea of feral children to go along with The Jungle Book.


    7. This story was so disjointed, and the pictures were not engaging at all. This could have been an interesting historical mystery, and I suppose it has made me interested in finding out more about this event. But this book did not do it for me.


    8. Interesting story of which I was not familiar. I'd personally love to learn more about these girls presumably raised by wolves and the missionary who found them. If you like this type of format, Yolen's book on the Roanoke Island mystery would be another great title to read.


    9. So disappointed with this book. Absolutely no answers were provided or conclusions determined. I finished knowing nothing more about this topic than before I started.
