“The Great Willow” is about a wolf pup.  One day she wanted to have an adventure and so she asked Mama Wolf if she could go to the big farm house.  Mama Wolf said no because it’s forbidden to wolves.  Wolf Pup went anyways.  When she got there she saw a little creature; it was a duckling.  The two then set off to chase all their dreams.

In their adventure, Wolf Pup and Duckling make new friends on their way. The friends all helped them get to where they were going, which was to The Great Willow.  Duckling was afraid of water and at one point they had to cross a river.  The two friends, Beaver and Turtle, helped them across.  Wolf Pup got on top of Beaver and Duckling rode on Turtle to get across the water.

“The Great Willow” by Michael Starr is a good story for anybody who likes adventures.  This is a really good adventure book and the animal characters were fun.
