The Wolf and Me

Orca Book Publishers | The Seven Sequels


Bunny is in trouble. He’s been kidnapped from the skating rink at City Hall in Toronto, and now he’s locked in a cold basement room, still in his parka and skates. Where is he? And why do his kidnappers keep asking questions about his dead grandpa and some weird national anthem? Bunny may not always know what’s going on, but he has an innocent’s ability to get to the heart of things and find out what it’s all about. When he manages to escape, he skates across hockey rinks and down frozen highways, always a few strides ahead of his kidnappers. He gets help along the way from an assortment of characters—some kindly, some crazy, some scary and at least one that will make your jaw drop.

The Wolf and Me is the sequel to both Weerdest Day Ever!, part of The Seven Prequels and Ink Me, part of Seven (The Series).

"This book [is] great fun. Bunny's adventures veer toward the edge of implausible, but his frank and lovable voice made me cheer for him...Like Richard Scrimger's previous novels, this book is playfully and smartly written. Readers who have already explored the original Seven the Series books will welcome another delightful, if improbable, adventure with Bunny...An all-around rollicking read."

---

"Poor Bunny. He's such a great guy but, often through no fault of his own, he gets himself immersed in the most unusual, even dangerous, situations...Like the detention centre, there are many obstacles that impede Bunny's journey. But he always finds a way to turn them into something positive... I'm so glad Richard Scrimger gave him life. He makes life better for all who meet him, fictional characters and readers alike."

---

"Bunny's learning disabilities can make academics challenging, but his unique way of viewing the world might just be the key to his freedom...Bunny's indomitable spirit makes him a likable, one-of-a-kind narrator...Readers will respond to this improbable, deeply sympathetic hero."

---

"This thrill-a-minute series will hook reluctant readers as well as fans of James Bond and Jason Bourne."

---

"[Bunny] bumbles along, and we get so caught up in his absurd adventures, his crazy misunderstandings, that we are compelled to read on and on...If that isn't the mark of a good book, I don't know what is."
