Your Dog's Wild Cousins

Your Dog's Wild Cousins

by Hope Ryden

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-The title alone should entice dog lovers to investigate this book further. However, while the writing is fluid and informative, the organization is questionable. The text is divided into two-page spreads on individual members of the canine family, but animals of one group, such as foxes, are not placed together. The section on the red wolf begins, ``A red wolf is not a gray wolf with a red tinge to its coat,'' and goes on to state that it ``...shares many traits with its two closest relatives, the gray wolf and the coyote.'' Information on the gray wolf, however, appears seven chapters earlier. High-quality full-color photographs with thought-provoking captions (``Can your dog sniff out underground mice?,'' ``Can your dog dig a den for itself?'') link the characteristics of domestic dogs with those of their wild relatives. While not as comprehensive as Juliet Clutton-Brock's Dog (Knopf, 1991), this book presents fascinating information that is hard to find elsewhere.-Lisa Wu Stowe, Great Neck Library, NY
