Laughing Wolf by Nicholas Maes

Circa 71 BC - this is where Felix Taylor and Carolyn Manes must go in order to save the world. In the 23rd century people are suffering from a mysterious disease that will kill everybody on the planet if not cured. The laughing wolf flower is the only thing that can possibly cure the plague. However, the flower has been extinct for thousands of years! Felix and Carolyn must travel back in time and find the flower. The fate of the world rests in their hands.

Laughing Wolf was an okay book. It was sometimes hard to figure out what character said what. Also, the author introduced too many characters, some of whom were easily forgotten. But, the ending was strong and very interesting. It wasn't one of the best books that I have read but kids who are particularly interested in history and the future might like Laughing Wolf.
