Wolf and Dog

Publisher: Gecko Press

Review

Dog lives in a warm house with plenty of food. Wolf lives free in the wild. He tells lies, has itchy fleas, loves rhyming words and is always hungry. The two secretly envy each other’s lives: Wolf visits Dog often, always on the hunt for grub. He’s cunning and crafty and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. But Dog is clever, and uses his brains to circumvent Wolf’s brute strength.

Marije Tolman’s evocative and humorous illustrations accompany Sylvie Vanden Heeden’s nine poetic stories about these two competing cousins. Gradually, through lots of comical escapades, gentle Dog and fierce Wolf grow to appreciate each other’s different strengths. An intriguing book about friendship and valuing difference.
