Wolfy’s complicated home life is hard, and an invitation to go pig-hunting with his uncle provides an opportunity for excitement and adventure. When things go awry, it suddenly becomes terrifying. Wolfy has to dig deep to find the courage to save his uncle and get help.

A true New Zealand story, action-packed and completely realistic, with beautifully evoked relationships between characters.


Shortlisted for the 2018 NZ Children's Book Awards - Copyright Licensing NZ Award for Young Adult Fiction 


'There is no doubt there is a fair bit of adrenaline involved in hunting (for females who hunt as well), but Mary-Anne has given us a spot-on portrayal of a teenager who is still learning his space in the world, making this more than just another yarn.' – Sarah Forster 

'This story had no ‘boring bits’ as Wolf came across one challenge after another. Great kiwi lingo and reluctant reader heaven.' – Adele Broadbent 

'It’s a graphic, high-tension, sometimes shocking story that will appeal to boys aged about 12 to 14 who are interested in the idea of testing themselves by going pig-hunting in the wilderness.' – Lorraine Orman
