'The Wolf (Animals in the Wild)' by Renne Rahir is a non-fiction book about wolves with some really nice illustrations. I found myself confused by who the target audience is supposed to be.

The pages tell about the wolf: where they live, what they look like, and how they spend their day. There is good text and illustrations showing wolves. On full illustration pages, there are silly text that might appeal to younger children.

The descriptive text is definitely for older readers while the text on the pictures is for younger readers. Perhaps this is meant to be a book for a child to grow with. It's possibly a translation problem, but I found the word intercourse to be an awkward choice when discussing how wolves procreate. It might cause uncomfortable conversations among those reading the book. Perhaps this is a cultural difference between the author's country and ours. It makes it a bit hard to recommend though. Still, the illustrations are nice and the facts are interesting.

I received a review copy of this ebook from Clavis Books and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
