Wolf and Dog

  • Interest Level: Grade 1 - Grade 4   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

Wolf and Dog are cousins. Wolf is wild, and Dog is tame. They don’t always see eye to eye, but when it comes to the important things in life―like food, family, and fleas―they make quite a team. Will Dog be brave enough to guard the house while his boss is away? Does Wolf have the right tricks up his sleeve to keep intruders out of his forest? And can they work together to chase off that pesky cat?

Illustrated in full color, these laugh-out-loud stories follow the ups and downs of an unusual friendship.
