Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3–Little Wolf longs to howl at the moon, but his parents are too busy to teach him. He turns to the forest animals for help, but Owl can only teach him to hoot, Frog's talents are confined to croaking, and Whippoorwill's to singing. Finally, Grandfather Wolf awakes and shows the youngster how to call forth a good howl. Lift up your head…stretch your neck…think of all the things you love…find the howl inside of you. Having done these things, Little Wolf lets loose with a tremendous howl that shakes the branches in the trees and splashes the water in the lake. Muñoz's watercolor paintings are suffused with white moonlight and humorous heartwarming scenes. Youngsters who long to accomplish a grown-up skill will readily identify with Little Wolf. Moka in Keiko Kasza's The Dog Who Cried Wolf (Putnam, 2005) is another charmer inspired by a full moon.–Marianne Saccardi, formerly at Norwalk Community College, CT

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. Themes of intergenerational bonding and childhood milestones lend substance to this agreeable picture book, but most alluring may be the onomatopoeic title and its noisy reprises within. Little Wolf (not to be confused with Tony Ross' early-chapter-book character) wants to learn to howl, but his parents are too busy to teach him. After frustrating tutorials in croaking, hooting, and birdsong from woodland creatures, Little Wolf's gentle, wise grandfather helps him to produce an "enormous" howl that impresses the whole pack. Although the somewhat meandering story line may challenge shorter attention spans, many children will be drawn by Munoz's soft-focus watercolors, in which gently anthropomorphized animals (notwithstanding stylized features, these wolves go unclothed and gnaw bones at suppertime) wander a moonlit wilderness rimmed with mountains, where a rock formation echoing Little Wolf's baying silhouette gives sharp-eyed youngsters something extra to notice. Nocturnal setting aside, this won't work as a bedtime book: Little ones will inevitably want to follow Little Wolf's lead and "find the howl inside [themselves]." Jennifer Mattson

Format: Hardcover
When Little Wolf has the urge to howl at the moon and his family can't immediately take the time to teach him how, he takes a proactive approach to dealing with his frustration and goes about asking other animals to help. Eventually, he finds the answers he's looking for and makes his family proud.
The illustrations go perfectly with the text. The animals are very expressive, and it's pretty hilarious to see Little Wolf's head sticking out of the water with a frog sprawled on top of it.
My four-year-old son has been asking for this book repeatedly since the first time we read it. A heartwarming family story.
