Summary

Summary

Squirrels chit-chitter-chatter, foxes swoosh-whoosh-rush, a deer stomp-stomp-stamps, and a hawk scree-scree-screeches. Into these quiet, NOISY woods, readers follow two frisky wolf pups yip-yap-yowling and grr-ruff-ruff-racing as they find their way back to their pack. Children will love calling out the many varied sounds throughout this enchanting, fast-paced chase through a lush forest--with noises crescendoing as they accumulate on the wolves' tangled path. And young readers will come to know more about forest creatures and their interconnected lives, in this creative story by poet and naturalist Michael J. Rosen, who was inspired and informed by the one-hundred-acre wood where he lives. The two final pages of the book include facts about each of the animals featured in this caper. Annie Won's signature luminous artwork lights the way, showcasing the animals and their habitat with glowing warmth and precision.
