Terror at Wolf Lake

by Max Elliot Anderson

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt

Review:

“Juvenile detention, hurt friends, school problems notwithstanding, Eddy Thompson proudly works his way through life by cheating, just as his Dad has taught him. His two best friends at school are rule-abiding, church-going Chet, and complaining, worrying Rusty. Attending school with Eddy causes his friends lots of problems, but school problems are nothing compared to the hair-raising adventures that occur when the three boys and their Dads decide to stay at the Thompson’s lake cabin and do some ice-fishing. Problems escalate from Eddy’s wild cheating schemes, to a toboggan ride that ends up in the frigid water, to bank-robbers trying to take advantage of the Thompson’s isolated cabin.

“A reluctant reader himself when young, author Max Anderson writes for young reluctant readers. Terror at Wolf Lake is an easy read. A small portion of the language challenges the reader, unobtrusively nurturing vocabulary growth. Believable adventures, recognizable characters, and a simple, eventful plot capture interest. Witnessing for the Lord and leading a lost sinner to the Lord form an underlying theme that fits well into the main plot. Terror at Wolf Lake is listed for readers ages 9-12. It will interest readers ages 8-10, and reluctant readers to 12.” -- Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews

Book Jacket:

Eddy Thompson was known for one thing and one thing only. Eddy was a cheater. He cheated on anything, anytime, anywhere, until something happened at Wolf Lake. It wasn't the brutal cold. It wasn't when he fell through the ice. It wasn't even when two scary men arrived at their remote cabin. What happened would change Eddy's life . . . forever.
