This Wolf Was Different

We rated this book:


“I wish I was more like them. I wish I was like a real wolf.” This is what she thinks to herself again and again – the lone wolf pup that dreams of being like the others. She eventually learns to be a bit more wolfish, playing with the others and venturing out of the den. But one devastating day, they leave her behind, journeying off on their own. They never make their way back to her, but then, a creature unlike her own – a little girl – approaches her. The two become intertwined, full of love for one another.

This is a beautiful story children will endear. It encompasses so many things to which most of them, at some point in their lives, will be able to relate. The feeling of aloneness is universal, and /This Wolf Was Different/ will help address this in young and old alike. Each new read will help remind them of their self-worth. This book is gorgeously written and masterfully illustrated. The cover is uniquely textured, and the warm and pastel hues woven throughout the pages perfectly complement the text and bring the story to life.
