Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa A. Caudill
The three main types of wild dogs are discussed in this wonderfully illustrated and designed book for young readers. Fourteen chapters explain the lives and habits of wolves, coyotes, and foxes. Readers learn where these animals can be found, what they hunt and eat, what hunts them, how they move, what their homes are like and countless other basic facts. Readers discover that a wolf or coyote can jump/leap up to 15 feet to catch prey and that wolves howl to protect their territory. The book ends with pictures of several other species of wild dogs from around the world. Additionally, there are pictures of individual paw prints and definitions of wild dog terminology. An index allows for easy access to specific information for children who will use this fascinating book. Part of the "Kids Can Press Wildlife Series."
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4--Basic facts, large print, and easy-to-read texts make these titles appealing. Double-page spreads are devoted to such topics as food, homes, bodies, defense, and the animals' interactions with people. Full-color naturalistic drawings are detailed and appropriately placed. Cutaway diagrams illustrate special anatomical features. In addition, an interesting trivia box appears in the upper right-hand corner of each spread. The material is well organized and generally accurate, with the exception of an inaccurate statement in Wild Dogs. A picture caption reads: "African hunting dog (or hyena)." Hyenas fall into a different family, Hyaenidae, which are more closely related to cats than to dogs. Nevertheless, these books will provide clear, accessible information for young report writers.--Lisa Wu Stowe, Great Neck Library, NY
