This is one of those rare treasures I stumbled across when I was sitting with my kids this past week waiting for story time at our local Barnes & Noble to start. I quickly snatched it off the shelf and read it to my kids. I'm not sure who enjoyed it more, them or me. I have no idea how I hadn't heard of this book until this moment. Not only is Jeff a local author/illustrated, but this story is fabulous!

I fell in love with Jeff's illustrations before I even read the book. These are some of the best illustrations I've seen. I've never been a huge wiener dog fan, not that they're not cute, I'm just more of big dog fan, but this adorable story won me over. It's a fun adventure story about a wiener dog who yearns for a little bit more adventure, when one day he discovers there's more beyond his quiet little house her shares with granny. Wiener dog becomes Wiener Wolf! No matter matter how much fun he has, he realizes that this may not be all he thought it was cracked up to be either.

This is not only a story with some of the most captivating illustrations, it's a fun adventure with a lovable character. When a book captures not only my attention, my children's attention and the attention of other younger kids that were seated near us, than you know it's a hit. I HIGHLY recommend picking this book up today! This is the perfect book for ages 4-7.

I saw this book last week at Barnes and Noble and when I went out to the parking lot I KNEW I needed it. As an elementary school counselor, I am always telling (preaching) to our students the importance of finding a friend you can be your self around. The type of friend where you don't have to change who you are or throw out your values. You know it's the right friend fit when you feel good about how you're acting and feeling. Enter WIENER WOLF!!!!!

Oh gosh, I loved this story. Wiener dog wants to run with the wolves and become their buddies. But he comes to realize it's just not working out trying to be friends with the wild wolves. Their behavior is not a good fit for him. He has to be true to himself and go back home. This is the part of the story where I always like to ask the kids, "Have you ever had that feeling? Like something doesn't feel right in your heart? That you are going against what you know is right?" Wiener Wolf is going to help me deliver this message. Friendship is a yearlong journey for kids so I am always sneaking in great books to help be a support.

So obviously I went back and purchased Wiener Wolf. I got the last copy on the bookshelf which tells me others see the value in it too. I love adding NEW ones like this to my shelf for the fall. The students will love the story and message in this one. It's simple and the illustrations are so well done the kids are not going to want me to turn the pages too fast. Also, how can you not love a book about a wiener dog trying to figure out who he is!?

This book is worth the purchase just for the expressions Jeff Crosby puts on his protagonist's face. He deftly mixes a fairly realistic style with some very cartoony expressions, and in a lesser artist this wouldn't work. It works beautifully here. The wolves are a bit scary, but probably not too scary for most young readers (when I was little, I was terrified of the wolf in "Peter and the Wolf", but these wolves have a really nicely drawn sleeping scene that makes them much less scary). And it demands to be read aloud, with audience participation in the parts with howling. I attended a reading at BookPeople in Austin, and watched a capacity crowd of children howl along enthusiastically.

Highly recommended.

This is a GREAT book. The illustrations are amazing, and the story--which clocks in at around 200 words--is as compelling as you can get with a picture book. Who hasn't wanted to swap the tedium of everyday life for endless adventure?

Wiener Dog does exactly that, and he learns something about himself in the process.

I have my own wiener dog, Napoleon, and I got this book for him. He is very much in touch with his inner alpha wolf, which is why he is afraid of helicopters--they remind him of Alaska. Napoleon sat on my lap while I read to him, although he did fall asleep before the end. (But he's 13, which in human years is 13. So who can blame him?)

If you have your own wiener dog, or a small child, or a person on your gift list with an inner wolf, this book is for you.

Illustrations are vivid and fun. The story is clever and meets the Dachshund
Personality. I am giving this book to my adult daughter who has three
dachshunds. She will love it.

Surprisingly a Disney book written for young children it is a great table book simply for the artwork. Especially if you a dachshund parent for you know there is a little wolf in those wiener dogs.

This is a very sweet book. My sons love hearing the story as they curl up with our own Weiner Dog.
