"Striking photographs chronicle the life span of a male wolf in the Great Bear Rainforest...Careful and varied page layouts include concise, vivid language that describes his journey and images that bring the reader up close—all this is missing is the feeling of misty air on skin...This well-made title offers great visual detail supported by age-appropriate text."

"The story is really told by the big, bright pictures—which glow with the rhythms and beauties of this remote habitat...Enthralling fare for budding naturalists."
CM Magazine - January 13, 2017
"Wolf Island is an absolutely gorgeous book with amazing photographs and text explaining the life of a wolf in simple and evocative language. The book will be a great addition to all libraries. While the book is intended for those in the early grades, there is enough here to intrest older readers, leading them to the other books by this author/photographer pair and to other nature stories and nonfiction. What more can you ask for? Highly recommended."
