Wolverine is a beautifully illustrated book describing this rarely seen animal. I liked that the book was written by someone who lives in the Arctic, which is part of the wolverine’s natural habitat.

The book describes lots of different aspects of wolverines, such as what they look like, their hunting tactics, and how their families work. The pictures helped me imagine what the text describes. My favourite picture is the one of the mother wolverine with her baby kits.

The book says it is for the youngest of readers, and the information is gives is suited to that age range. As I’m older, the one thing I would change would be to have more text detail in each section. I found the facts really interesting, and it left me wanting to know more.
