A dog who insists she's a wolf finds the perfect home with a young girl who sees past her prickly personality in this pet adoption story that's as laugh-out-loud funny as it is heart-tugging.

When a particularly growly pup finds herself in an animal shelter, she insists that she is a wolf--a lone wolf. After all, she's not sweet, she's not cute, and she is just fine on her own! Luckily, there's one little girl at the shelter who knows that sometimes, good dogs act bad when they feel afraid and that extending a little kindness can help even the most wolfish pup at the pound let down her guard.

Praise For I Am a Wolf

★  "Loveable." —Kirkus, starred review

"Debut creator Miller’s boldly expressive cartoons show the varying temperaments of dogs and humans. Even the lone wolves of the world, her friendly story suggests, need love." —Publishers Weekly

"A joyful debut, starring a stray with the force of personality, if definitely not the disposition, of a Chris Raschka dog." —Booklist

"Sweet and silly...Wolf’s goofy grin on the last page will be contagious to kids and adult readers-aloud." —BCCB
