Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite Anya was afraid of wolves. And that’s a problem because she is living in a very isolated place, in a cottage with her Oma (grandmother) in the far north in Siberia. It’s winter and there’s lots of wolves outside, big wolves, and they’re very hungry wolves. The worst part is at night when they howl. The louder the howling, the closer they are to the cottage. One night, the howling was very close. Anya didn’t want to wake Oma, so she carefully peered out her bedroom window. The sight of glowing eyes very close to her window really scared her, so she ran to Oma’s room to wake her. Oma tried to reassure Anya, going to the cottage door to look outside. What she found was Anya’s Uncle Rodin and his team of sled dogs. One of the dogs, Miko, was injured and had to be brought inside. Anya was frightened at first, but after much encouragement, she overcame her fear and cuddled with Miko and made a new friend. Fear is a difficult feeling to overcome and Anya was very brave in the end. All children have fears and they usually turn to someone they trust, a parent or a grandparent, for reassurance. In Pam Atherstone’s colorfully illustrated children’s picture book story, The Dog in Wolf’s Clothing: Anya Faces Her Fears and Finds a Friend, children can follow a charming story about a little girl living in Siberia. Young readers will learn a little bit about life in Siberia, about the wolves, and the sled dogs used to travel around the frozen countryside. This is a good book for teaching young readers, but also encouraging them to face their fears like Anya did. A fascinating tale.
