Wolves, wild dogs, and, of course, their adorable cubs and pups hold a special fascination for children who wonder what life is like for their pets' feral cousins. The exciting and informative narrative text and richly detailed art show these animals in their various habitats, including a pack of gray wolves in North America, jackals scavenging in southern Europe, African wild dogs, and dingoes roaming the Australian outback. An ideal gift for young dog lovers, who will find it hard not to paw through these pages time and time again.

Christiane Gunzi is the author of several natural history books for children. Her works for Kingfisher include The Best Book of Big Cats, The Best Book of Snakes, The Best Book of Endangered and Extinct Animals, and The Best Book of Whales and Dolphins.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5-In this eye-pleasing title, many bright and colorful, captioned illustrations leave room for a brief paragraph of simple text on a variety of two-page topics. From behaviors ("Meeting and greeting," "Finding food") to species ("African hunting dogs," "Mountain dogs"), the book provides snippets of information that may satisfy some readers and pique the curiosity of others. The glossary defines some possibly unfamiliar terms, and the index provides easy access to information (though a number of citations lead only to an illustration). Attractive, approachable (the large font and wide spacing will encourage reluctant readers), and informative to a modest degree, this book is best suited for browsing, though it would certainly serve to plump up a slender bibliography.
