"Tristan Wolf is unlike most children's books. This is an enjoyable story about a little boy named Tristan who loves to daydream. Tristan is a boy who obviously feels a little different from his family, and he expresses this through his daydreams. The story line follows Tristan's adventures as a boy being raised by a wolf pack. He is trying to find out where he fits in. As the story unfolds, Tristan Wolf becomes aware that he is different from the rest of the wolf pack, and sets out to find humans, to see if he fits in with them. Daydreaming is a great way for children to express their creativity, and this book does just that.

I liked the daydreaming aspect of this book because it twists both fantasy and reality together in order to create a truly entertaining and interesting tale that is appealing to both adults and children. This book teaches children creativity in a way they can relate to, and at the same time introduces them to a general ideas of differences and norms between groups and how the perceptions and stereotypes are not always true. It was very appealing to my eight year old nephew because he is at the age where kids are starting to try and figure out where they fit in with their peers, and need to realize and learn that not everyone they will come across is the same and that it is okay to be different.
