Detwiler invokes just the right amount of romanticism: her wolves tussle in the purple rays of a frigid sunrise and dance, silhouetted, in the falling shadows of twilight?but they're always unmistakably wild. Readers should be captivated by the animals' resilient joie de vivre as well as by their habitats' seasonal glories. ? Publishers Weekly

A year in the life of wolves is told through verse in this beautifully illustrated picture book. Readers and listeners will be completely engaged in the rhythm of the poetry, which conveys the movement and habits of wolves. - School Library Journal

while a vivid, realistic painting illustrates the weather as well as the place and the wolves' activities. Using lighting and seasonal cues skillfully, Detwiler achieves more variety than might be expected. - Booklist
