Stone Age Stories with Saviour Pirotta

About The Author:

Saviour Pirotta is an author and playwright. His first children’s book was published in the late 1980s and he has since produced picture books, collections of myths and legends, middle grade novels and early readers. He particularly likes writing historical fiction and his latest books are set in Ancient Greece, the Golden Islamic Age and the Neolithic. He lived in London and Brighton for many years but now makes his home in the seaside town of Scarborough, in North Yorkshire. He says it\s the perfect home for an author, with lovely beaches, cafes to write in and the tastiest fish and chips in the world.

About The Book:

Wolf struggles to fit into his village. He s not strong like his brother or a natural leader like his father. Every day he just tries to keep his head down. That is until a sacred spear head is stolen. Wolf is cast out, seen as the reason for its disappearance. With no one but his trusty dog, Shadow, to join him, Wolf vows to find the stolen spear and restore his honour. But Wolf has never left the village before and the world beyond the sea is a complete unknown… where will this journey take him and what secrets will he uncover? Join Wolf on his hunt for the spear, as he journeys from the village now known as Skara Brae to a wider, ancient world on the cusp of a new age.
