Review: The investigator peeked over the corner. Sherlock took out his magnifying glass to look at the footprints. Not all people enjoy mysteries like this. They think that mysteries are a waste of time and do not like the whole Sherlock Holmes thing. For those people I recommend Wolf Stalker. Itís the first of the National Park Series by Gloria Skurzynski and Alane Ferguson.

The story is about a family that has just decided to take in a rude foster kid named Troy. Troyís mom had gone missing so he was placed with the family. Meanwhile a crisis is going on at Yellowstone Park. People are saying that wolves are killing all the deer and even killed an innocent dog. While the adults in this story go to investigate the crime scene, Ashley, Troy, and Jake find an injured wolf and decided to care for it. Together this unlikely team will solve the mystery of why the deer are being killed, and why the dog was attacked.

This is a wonderful story with awesome details and adventure. At first I was not sure if I would like it or not because of Troy. But, later he became my favorite character.

Even if you donít like mysteries you will enjoy the National Park Series.
