About this title


Lost in the mountains, Tiblo and his little sister Tanksi are rescued by a friendly wolf who leads them safely back to their village

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4-- New text, jacket, and rich reproduction of the color art mark this revised edition of The Friendly Wolf (Bradbury, 1974; o.p.). The basic story remains the same: two young Plains Indian children get lost while berry-picking, and are protected and led home by a wolf which is then honored by the children's people. Goble has made the wolf in this version less terrifying to the children in keeping with his more overt message about modern treatment of wolves by human beings. His ending assumes the wolves' absence until "we . . . have the wolves in our hearts and dreams again." This mild didacticism does not add to the tale, nor, unfortunately, does the rewritten text. While some of the language has been improved, much of the story's flow is lost to a string of declaratives; it smacks of easy readerizing, and the truncation of the original is often awkward and confusing. This is particularly disappointing because the new illustrations and print layout are so much more appealing: this effort could have been a real knockout. Illustrations that were slightly murky and muddy now appear brilliant and distinct, vividly showing off Goble's trademark style--thin white space outlining the stylized figures in glorious traditional Plains Indian garb. Good "good wolf" stories are hard to come by, and offer a discussion-rich (not to mention politically correct) contrast to the abundance of good "bad wolf" tales out there; this will be a useful addition to the former, but it is not something worth howling about. -- Nancy Palmer, The Little School, Bellevue, WA
