Moka is a good dog. But when Michelle, his little girl, reads him a book about wolves, being a good dog suddenly seems awfully boring. Wolves get to run around doing whatever they want. No one ever makes a wolf dress up for a tea party.

So Moka decides to run away to the wild. But what will happen when the real wolves show up?

For any kid who's tired of being good, Moka's antics will be a vicarious treat.

Praise For The Dog Who Cried Wolf

"Captivat[ing]. . . Children will howl with delight when they meet this engaging pup.”—School Library Journal, starred review."
—School Library Journal, starred review

"Thanks to excellent pacing, children will get caught up in the childlike Moka's emotions: the pleasure of being free, the loneliness of night, and the exuberant reunion with Michelle…. A final twist provides the perfect end to this appealing tale that will lend itself to storytime or one-on-one reading."
