Lost in a snowstorm on her way home from school, a girl in a red hooded jacket finds and saves a wolf pup, and the pack, in turn saves her. A near wordless adventure movingly told through watercolored pen and ink scenes and occasional sounds. (up to 7. K. Isaacs)
With the family of cousins Bonnie and Sylvia away, Miss Slightcarp, a duplicitous nanny, sends the girls to an orphanage and plans to gain control of the estate. To save their home, the girls must escape and outwit wily Miss Slighcarp, the wolf “inside” their house. Aiken's daughter Lizza lively narrates this beloved classic. (10-14)
Meet the Pygg brothers! That's what Wilfong the wolf wants to do, too . . . but in this clever, colorful early chapter book, it's not for the reason you'd think! Plenty of huffing and puffing, but riddles and surfing, too.
