Maple loves being the Parker family’s pet dog . . . but why does everyone else think she’s a wolf? This question sparks an identity crisis and a spirited journey of self-discovery for Maple the husky, the irresistible star of Sarah Kurpiel’s picture book debut. Fans of Red: A Crayon’s Story and Wolfie the Bunny will cheer for Maple to find exactly where she belongs.

Maple the husky loves being the Parker family’s dog. She’s a valued member of the team, but strangers always seem to think she’s a wolf! It’s true: Maple can hunt, she can howl, and she can dig, just like wolves can. Oh, no! What if she is a wolf and doesn’t belong with her family, after all?A tale of family, self-acceptance, and belonging, this perfectly paced debut strikes the balance between heartwarming and hilarious. The expressive artwork and simple, readable text let this irrepressible and sensitive dog shine in this picture book version of the hero’s journey. Lone Wolf will capture readers’ hearts, whether or not they have a pet themselves.
