Dog makes a new friend in Wolf, and their adventures together are fantastically illustrated in a soft black-and-white palette. This would be a perfect bedtime story for nature lovers and adventurers.— Chelsea
When Dog slips away from home at night, she finds an unexpected friend and an inner wildness. Together, Dog and Wolf explore the woods under the glow of the moonlight and sparkle of fireflies until the morning beckons Dog home. Gorgeously illustrated, this is the perfect bedtime story and ultimate wish fulfillment for big dreamers and adventurers.
“The striking thing about this story is the unusual black-and-white illustrations that are created using brushed graphite powder, pencil, and erasure on paper. Their soft, atmospheric mood and their design and distribution—full-bleed double-page spreads, single-page bleeds, and, particularly, a few stellar sequences in which multiple iterations of characters denote action—show author/illustrator Poster’s skill in telling a story with pictures.” —Kirkus
“Through the soft drawings, she captures the illumination of the moonlight effectively, giving the animals a ghostly quality. Multiple spreads add to the cinematic storytelling . . . Luminescent illustrations and dramatic storytelling turn one night of moonlit play into an exceptional story.” —School Library Journal
