Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2–Little Wolf's family howls together every night in a beautiful chorus, but the youngster is unable to join in. His brothers and sister have mockingly nicknamed him Squeaky, but his parents assure him that one day he will come into his own. And one night, when he gets lost in the woods, he does. Illustrations done with hand-printed paper and digital collage depict a warm, cuddly wolf family in a soft, wintry setting. Lots of white space, bold text, and large pictures make this story a natural read-aloud that will resonate with children, especially with younger siblings.–Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MAα(c) Copyright 2010.

From Booklist

Every night Little Wolf’s family howls a beautiful song, combining his mother’s warm voice, his father’s deep one, his sister’s sweet one, and his brothers’ “happy, yappy” sound. To his distress, Little Wolf can only squeak, though his parents reassure him that his howl will come in time. One afternoon, he dashes off through the new-fallen snow and realizes that he is lost. Far from home and frightened, he watches the full moon rise and voices a beautiful howl all his own. This effective picture book touches on many issues that children experience: the importance of family, the longing be like parents and admired siblings, the hurt caused by teasing, pride in accomplishments, and the drive toward independence from parents while still depending upon them. Created using digital collage of hand-printed paper, the large-scale illustrations feature clean lines, simple forms, and restrained use of color. Fine for storytimes, this pleasing picture book is sure to inspire a chorus of happy howling. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan

This book reminded me of a Husky dog in the snow, thus I purchased it at a terrific hard copy price. Pleasantly surprised at the wonderful Little Wolf story!

I found this book at my local library and I love it. The illustrations are simple but unique and adorable. I teach young children and I love books that have lots of opportunities for children to join in the storytelling with sounds. This one has interesting sounds galore - Little Wolf's early squeak, the birds singing, and at last his beautiful howl. It's a nice story about growing up. It's also a wonderful story for winter.
