Routines can become smothering, and poor Moon, hooked on a schedule filled with homework, housework, music, and sports practice, along with sundry other have-to-dos feels overwhelmed. She yearns for something else, but what should it be? Poor, pigtailed Moon watches a falling star on the outside, and then voila, she meets an approachable silver wolf who, along with his pack, teaches her how to join in their wolf ways. Moon learns how to pounce, and wonderfully, how to howl and play, yet importantly how to listen and feel. All in all, she learns what it feels like to be loose and wild, and she suddenly feels liberated.
Children will love this endearing tale of how to release their inner selves and infect others with their joy and pleasures. Moon beams out at the reader with her vivid, bright lavender face and enormous eyes alongside the silvery furred wolves against a blackish forestry background. The illustrations are as important as the text, as these unique depictions enhance the richness of the story. The point is clearly made that overscheduled kids can be overwhelmed, and the best remedy for such a malady is to allow a little bit of wildness.
