Maddie’s mother agrees to send her daughter to a new camp – Wolf Camp.
But when Maddie returns, she seems, well, changed. She snaps at flies, howls at fire trucks, and chases squirrels – on all fours. She quits eating candy and starts eating meat – only meat. And the dog is now afraid of her when she lifts her lip and shows her teeth.
What child hasn’t fantasized about being an animal? And what parent hasn’t exclaimed over the transformation in their child when picking him or her up from camp? This book intertwines these two themes in a hilarious story of a very different kind of camping experience.

Wolf Camp Reviews
“This story is so well crafted that it is sure to become one of your children’s favorite books. Very highly recommended.”
“This book is well-written and beautifully illustrated. There is a balanced mixture of sight words and words which require decoding, so the beginning reader may need some help at times. Ultimately, though, the story is enjoyable and will prove fun as either a read-aloud book or a story to read on one’s own.”
