Tails: Book One, Silver Wishes Series by W.J. Scott is a fantasy adventure story that introduces young readers to Akule and his pack that live in the Sacred Plateau. They are gripped with fear after the arrival of hunters in their plains. The hunters are in search of their silver tails and the pack realizes that they have nowhere to hide. Samsa, the hunter who chopped Kywah's tail off last summer, is there and Kywah remembers him very well. They have to retrieve the deep magic from the Wise One to help their pack survive the slaughter. Kywah volunteers to retrieve the deep magic as he has already lost what the hunters want to possess; his tail. As he leaves, he realizes how much the pack is depending on him for their survival. Will Kywah succeed in his mission?

The story is filled with whimsy, fantasy, adventure, and action. The author weaves an entertaining and engaging story with interesting characters, magic, and illustrations that will keep young readers glued to the story till the very end. Kywah’s journey in search of the Wise One is filled with excitement, and meeting Rotarn, the Wise One, and seeing the deep magic are fascinating moments for readers. I found the story magical and the words of wisdom from Rotarn are insightful, spiritual, and profound. Kywah's journey after meeting Rotarn is magical and the characters he meets give another twist to the plot. Readers see Kywah perceive things around him in a different manner. All the characters in the story add to the fantasy and whimsy angle. The spiritual undertones in the story give it another dimension and make it a worthy read. It is definitely a story that children will enjoy reading and the ending will make them long for Book Two.
