Look inside to find out how these clever creatures hunt animals, communicate, and stay safe in some of the coldest places on Earth.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jamaica Johnson Conner
"Who's afraid of the big, bad wolf?" The three little pigs and little red riding hood sure were afraid of this menacing villain, but Dr. Harry Frank, professor at the University of Michigan, is not. In fact, Dr. Frank does not perceive wolves as villains but as pets. In this title, Searl shares the accomplishments of Dr. Frank's work with wolves and details the instincts of the wolf and his pack. Part of the "Smart Animals" series, this book is filled with full-color photographs of wolves interacting with other wolves, hunting, racing through snow, snarling, and more. The intellect of the wolf is highlighted, as well. As a resource, this title offers bolded words within the text which are later defined in the glossary, and a bibliography, reading suggestions, an index, a table of contents for quick reference, and a chart of facts about the gray wolf's weight, length, height, fur, color, food, life span, and habitat. The reading level and ease, the pictures, and the content of this title make it an excellent choice for children who love learning about fierce and fascinating animals.
