"It's been a long time since I've read something quite like Kodiak: King of the Grizzlies. Callaghan draws from his background in environmental science and his love of nature- plus his wild imagination- to create a very rare and compelling story with plenty of surprises. As a protagonist, Cole possesses a sense of curiosity and adventure that can only be described as contagious, and I kept thinking about him, Uncle Bill and Big Bear Mountain long after I finished reading."
-Dylan Roche, author of The Purple Bird
“Tom Callaghan intertwines a legendary pioneer story with the present-day intrigue of a bored 15-year-old to stir the hearts of readers. Detailed descriptions of life before and after humans developed the California wilderness draws readers into conflicting worlds, challenging them to rethink their own ideals and redefine the notion of hero. Can the great beasts of the wilderness coexist with humans? Some people—and beasts—thought so. The balance of nature and future of our ecosystem may depend on what you think, too.”
- Micki Bare, author of The Hubbleville Series

This is a great book! I loved Kodiak. He is an amazing character and was the highlight of the book for me. I learned a lot about bears and the history behind them and people. This book really made me want to do more to help protect animals.


I really recommend it!

A Powerful Story About the Natural World

Callaghan writes an engaging and enticing story of a young boy connecting with nature. It includes powerful lessons about the natural world and what our place is in it. It strongly advocates for the conservation of natural creatures and I think it will inspire many young readers to do the same. The journal pages were so fun to read.
