He's wagging his tail, fetching the Frisbee, and eager to get petted--in short, Fido's living up to his title as "man's best friend." But the domesticated dog's got a special secret: in many ways, he's really a lot like a wolf. Using amazing close-up images she shot inside a real wolf lair, as well as museum-quality historical pictures and illustrations, award-winning author and photographer Jenni Bidner compares the pet pup with his wild ancestor. Why did dogs become dogs and wolves stay wolves? Should you ever have a wolf in the house--or a hybrid? And exactly why do dogs like to lick your face? Along the way, Bidner debunks popular myths about wolves and provides a true and fascinating look at their behavior.

In addition to being an accomplished photographer and award-winning author of over a dozen books--including The Kids' Guide to Digital Photography and Dog Heroes -- Jenni Bidner is a canine (K9) handler with Illinois-Wisconsin Search & Rescue Dogs. This nonprofit organization assists police and fire departments in locating lost and missing people.

I love how this book compares wolves with pet dogs. It has vibrant pictures of dogs or wolves on every page. The pictures alone make the book worthwhile, but the information is solid and will be sure to interest any dog-loving kid (or adult!) out there.
