Appraisal: Science Books for Young People

“. . .the author emphasizes the positive aspects of the wolf story, before balancing the account with a chapter on myth and history.”

Science and Children

“The authors’ detailed treatment of animal behavior and communication is unusual in a juvenile trade book. The unusually clear and informative photographs done are worth the price of the book.”
