Some may prefer the proper way to howl, but what if you have a song in your heart that needs to come out? Sisters Laura McGee Kvasnosky and Kate McGee have created a wonderful wolf story about the importance of doing things your own way and being true to your heart when it swells with wildness and joy. Little Wolf can hardly wait. Tonight he will howl at the moon to the top of the sky. First, Big Wolf demonstrates traditional howling form: AAAAAAAAAAOOOOOooooooooo. Then it's Little Wolf's turn. He's sure he is ready, but when the big moment comes, something happens. Something unexpected, something wild, something unbe-beep-bop-believable!
