In a delightful mix of intrigue and humor, a young girl named Maddie goes to a Wolf Camp and comes back with disturbing new habits—wolf-like habits. Kids will be fascinated with the idea of transformation into an animal, and parents will recognize the sense of change their children undergo at summer camp.
What I thought about it:
This was a delightful picture book! It was written for children ages 4-8 years old and has some amazing pictures in it. I don't know how to describe the pictures because some are very descriptive but as you can see by the cover, the artist doesn't concern herself with making us people the characters are lifelike. I picked this out because of the great idea of a girl going off to summer camp and then returning different- wolf like different! I thought it was a really cute idea and the book does a good job of delivering on it. The Amazon page recommends reading this book to a child about to go off to summer camp but I believe a child would love reading this book no matter when because the drawings truly are beautiful and it is well-written.
Wait until a child reaches the pages when Maddie is distracted by a grasshopper and chases after a squirrel! Those are my favorite pages in this book but I also love the last couple pages and I hope to see another book of Maddie back from Bear Camp! :D
