These nine stories from as many different countries reflect our enduring fascination with the mysterious wolf. From Finland to Japan, from Egypt to Russia, wolves have generated stories--sometimes appearing helpful and sometimes tricky, here foolish and there wise. Kevin Strauss sounds like he's reading, rather than telling, these stories, but his pleasant manner and ability to distinguish characters' voices in funny and interesting ways quickly make this unimportant to listeners. Some of these tales will sound familiar and others startlingly new, but all tend to reinforce universal values (the rewards of unselfish kindness, the value of freedom, and the importance of listening to your mother) and will be enjoyed by children and parents alike.
