School Library Journal
This lovely book celebrates nature and the great north woods between Canada and the United States, an area where wolves can sometimes be seen. One night, Nell and her uncle drive past the cabins nestled around a lake, then they climb until they can see the glittering stars above them and try out their wolf calls. As Nell learns to howl, the pack answers back, and together their songs resound over the hills and water. The text and illustrations both convey the wonder and mystery of nature as the child feels trepidation about the wolves and experiences joy when they answer her. The wolves frame the lower half of the lush, verdant spreads. Back matter offers additional, interesting information on these animals and suggestions on how readers can try howling with wolves themselves. A unique look at a controversial species, this title should be a welcome addition to most collections.
