Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This engaging volume uses dramatic, full-page illustrations and informative passages to introduce young readers to a variety of wild dogs including wolves, coyotes, foxes, dingoes, jackals, hunting dogs, dholes, zorros, and bush dogs. Covering every part of the globe, this resource looks closely at the physical characteristics, behaviors, habits, and habitats of several wild dog species. As youngsters flip through the pages of this wonderful publication, they will learn all kinds of interesting facts including the reasons why coyotes howl, the role the alpha male plays in a wolf pack, the length of time gray fox cubs stay with their mothers, the types of food in a dhole's diet, and much more. At the end of the book, the author provides a short discussion about the primary threats to wild dogs as well as the importance of studying and tracking wolves. An illustrated glossary and comprehensive index are included. Packed with detailed illustrations, informative captions, and fascinating facts, this reference will quickly become a classroom and library favorite. 2003, Kingfisher,
— Debra Briatico
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-In this eye-pleasing title, many bright and colorful, captioned illustrations leave room for a brief paragraph of simple text on a variety of two-page topics. From behaviors ("Meeting and greeting," "Finding food") to species ("African hunting dogs," "Mountain dogs"), the book provides snippets of information that may satisfy some readers and pique the curiosity of others. The glossary defines some possibly unfamiliar terms, and the index provides easy access to information (though a number of citations lead only to an illustration). Attractive, approachable (the large font and wide spacing will encourage reluctant readers), and informative to a modest degree, this book is best suited for browsing, though it would certainly serve to plump up a slender bibliography.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
