Meet Homer, a dog who heads to camp to live like a wolf Here's the perfect book for the legions of kids out there who love dogs and funny books. Homer is a dog . . . but he also secretly fancies himself part wolf. So when an invitation to attend WOLF CAMP ("Where every dog can live as a wolf for a week") falls out of his kibble bag one morning, he's determined to go. After his people finally agree, Homer boards the bus bound for Wolf Camp, along with fellow campers Trixie and Rex. They're greeted on the other end by wolf counselors Fang and Grrr ("they seem nice"), and what follows is an array of wolf activities, including learning to howl, mark, and hunt. Of course, Homer's a little homesick at times, and the food isn't very good, but that just makes heading home all the sweeter. Perfect for all those kids anticipating camp themselves, Zuill's debut introduces a charmer of a dog and puts him in some laugh-out-loud scenarios.
