We read two books tonight that featured wolves. The other was Bridget and the Gray Wolves. This was the better of the two books from both a narrative and illustrative standpoint.
I don't mind the portrayal of wolves as long clawed, strong jawed, furry carnivores, because after all, that's what they are. The book really deals in facts--nothing was in here that a wolf would call inaccurate, it just wasn't a book that gave us a full view of a wolf and their place in the ecosystem. There are good nonfiction books out there for that. The Wolves Are Back springs immediately to mind. This book was meant as a little bit of irony and black humor (a rabbit checking out a book about wolves?! What could possibly go wrong?!), and my niece and nephew really enjoyed that.
