"Runt" by Marion Dane Bauer is a book about a wolf pup who was born the runt o fhis litter. He picks up Runt as his name because he is the runt. Runt does not want to stay at the bottom of his pack, unnoticed, so he must work to be as good as the rest.
This story is very exciting and sad. It is a rather fast-moving book. It is also a quick read. It is a very easy read because the vocabulary is elementary.
I really like this book because it has so many unpredictable twists and turns. I really couldn't say what age you should be to read it because it depends upon the person (maybe 7 and older). I think everyone should read or hear this story at some time.
