About this title:
Synopsis:
Two renowned children’s book creators teamed up to make this stirring picture book that tells the story of how, over a century, wolves were persecuted in the United States and nearly became extinct. Gradually reintroduced, they are thriving again in the West, much to the benefit of the ecosystem. This book will teach a new generation to appreciate the grace, dignity, and value of wolves as it promotes awareness of the environment’s delicate balance. Paired with gorgeous paintings by landscape artist Wendell Minor, Jean Craighead George’s engaging text will inspire people of all ages to care about the protection of endangered species.

About the Author:

Wendell Minor is a celebrated illustrator and designer of books for children, many by his friend Jean Craighead George. He lives in Connecticut.


From AudioFile:
George's story follows the life of a wolf pup in current-day Yellowstone National Park. The story entertains while explaining how wolves were reintroduced into the park to reestablish ecological balance after they had become extinct due to a flawed understanding of their role in nature. Wendell Minor, who is also the book's illustrator, narrates. His voice has a tone of reassurance and safety, and his pacing and cadence allow the listener to amply enjoy both the text and its illustrations. However, Minor's delivery of the repetitive phrase "the wolves are back" sounds slightly awkward. And the production's sound effects, which evoke setting and specific events, detract from the story and narration. J.K.R. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
