Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3-7-This triumphant and satisfying sequel to Sheep (Farrar, 2006) is sure to excite readers. Jack, the faithful, prizewinning Border collie, is aging but as determined as ever to fulfill his duties: protecting his boy, Luke, and their sheep from coyotes. Though his mind is quick as a wink, his body is beginning to slow and he needs to decide which of his kin will be the next great sheepherder. Just as Jack is coming close to making his decision, a new and more dangerous predator, a rabid wolf, appears and threatens the idyllic life on the ranch. Jack is faced with his ultimate moral dilemma-duty or love? Hobbs does it again in this engaging and heart-wrenching story. Not only will readers delve into the story through the eyes of Jack, but they will also catch a glimpse into the thoughts of the antagonist, creating a mixed sense of empathy and apathy, challenging them to consider the roles and perspectives of each character more fully. The story has an element of suspense and will keep children coming back for more. The author clearly respects the intellect of her young audience, creating an emotionally complex plot in which not all story lines have a happy ending. Fans of Sheep will consider this a must-read, and those who are unfamiliar with it will enjoy the story as well.-Amy Shepherd, St. Anne's Episcopal School, Middleton, DEα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

In this sequel to Sheep (2006), Hobb’s story about a border collie’s adventures in sheepherding and searching for a good home, Jack finds himself facing down an unfamiliar foe. Stalking the herd under Jack’s protection, a rabid wolf is eyeing one of Jack’s grandpups as a potential mate—the promising but still-wet-behind-the-ears Jackie. A pack of coyotes, a philosophical debate about the use of traps and guns, and Jack’s own inner arguments about love versus duty make this slim volume a meaty read and take it beyond most dog stories written for young readers. Alternating chapters from the wolf’s perspective make him at least sympathetic. The main tension—will Jack recognize the nature of the danger before it’s too late?—should keep youngsters engaged until the last page. Grades 3-6. --Karen Cruze
