I believe all dogs have a little bit of wolf in them, or at least they think they do (my little lhasa apso included). Wiener Wolf by Jeff Crosby (2011, Disney Hyperion Books) is about a dachshund who longs for some excitement, so he leaves the comforts of home, sheds his sweater, and joins a wolf pack. He has the best time until he discovers that wolves must catch their own dinner. That’s a bit too wild for him. He realizes that he belongs at home with Granny. And Granny realizes that all her little dog needs is friends. This book is filled with beautiful, realistic illustrations, humor, and drama. I especially like the scenes with the wolves, though the youngest readers may find them a tad scary. Overall, a very enjoyable picture book.
