The Howling Tower(2006)
(The first book in the Bear Kingdom series)
A novel by Michael Coleman
In a world run by bears, where humans are kept as pets or slaves, how would you survive? The first story in a fantastic new trilogy that really breaks boundaries with its original content and strong voice, "The Howling Tower" follows Benjamin Wildfire, the feisty protagonist, who runs away from his cruel bear owner with mad Mops, the girl-next-door. They are determined to find the fabled Hide Park (a place where it's said humans run free) but instead they are caught by a sap-catcher (saps are what bears call humans) and taken to Howling-Tower, a prison-like place of training, and it turns out, evil experimentation. It takes all of Benjamin's ingenuity to survive, but will he manage to escape?
