One moonlit night, Little Wolf wakes and knows he is ready. This is the night he will learn how to howl. But who can teach him? Mother and Father Wolf are too busy, and none of the other animals know how. There is someone, though, who has been howling for many years. He is old and gray. He is wise and patient. And he has a grandson who wants very much to learn how to howl.
Grandfather’s encouraging words and Little Wolf ’s strong, sonorous first howl are sure to inspire readers to discover the howl within themselves.
Claudio Munoz has illustrated a number of books for children, including LITTLE PIG FIGWORT CAN'T GET TO SLEEP by Henrietta Branford and NIGHT WALK by Jill Newsome, both for Clarion. He was born and raised in Chile and now lives in England.
