Fighting Ruben Wolfe

Performed by:
Stig Wemyss

One day we will fight again, but for now we are wolves in a cage, waiting to be let out... The Wolfe family has fallen on hard times. Mr. Wolfe has had an accident at work and has been unemployed for months. Mum cleans longer and harder, and works a night shift at the hospital. Sarah gets drunk now and then. Older brother Steve wants to leave home, to forget about his lunatic family. When Cameron and Ruben find they can earn fifty dollars a win with an organized boxing racket, they take the chance. Ruben has talent for boxing and Cameron has heart at least. They need the money, but it’s really about self-respect. Boxing will change forever the way they see themselves. Author Markus Zusak pens a surprisingly complex and touching story that will linger long with readers. The language is hard-hitting, witty, and authentic - as are the emotions and action. Fighting Ruben Wolfe is not about boxing. It's about respect, stubborn pride, and real brotherly love.

Stig Wemyss

Stig Wemyss is an actor, writer and the voice behind millions of children’s audio books. Well, not millions. Thousands … Alright, more like hundreds … He has a huge fan club. Bolinda Audio is constantly receiving letters from kids saying things like ‘Stig Rocks’ and ‘I love Stig’ and ‘Stig Wemyss is the best narrator in the world’. Of course we don’t show Stig all these letters, as he already thinks he’s the best narrator in the universe! Now that he is also the author of an exciting in-car audio entertainment series, The Tripp Diaries, he thinks he’s the best narrator and the best author in the universe. We think he is too, but let’s just keep that to ourselves!
