Additional Information

"It's hard to imagine the child—story-lover or fact-lover, dog-lover or not—who would not be drawn in by this book."—The New York Times Book Review

How did dog become man’s best friend? Dogs come in such a variety of shapes, sizes, and breeds, that it is hard to believe that they all have a common ancestor--the wolf! Hudson Talbott takes readers on a fascinating journey through history to see how wolves’ relationships with humans sparked their development into the dogs we know and love today.
Striking paintings, from an adorable wolf pup to a wide range of modern-day dog breeds, illustrate this insightful story of teamwork and friendship. Through the eyes of a prehistoric boy and a lone wolf pup, we see how the bond between our ancestors and these wild animals may have developed. Starting as enemies competing for food, the wolf and the boy realize that they’ll eat better and be safer if they team up. Over time, others catch on, and as many of the wolves become more domesticated, the humans breed them for skills like hunting, herding, pulling, and rescuing. And today, there are more breeds of dog than of any other animal, all thanks to this relationship that started so long ago.

I bought this book for my 5 year old granddaughter. The illustrations are very nice, although one illustration of a bison on a spit was too graphic for a young child. Our local paper reviewed and recommended the book. I felt that the story didn't flow and was disappointing. The quality of the writing did not match up to the quality of the illustrations.
My family includes a child who only reads non-fiction, and another who only reads fiction. And we have three dogs they all love. I’m pleased to see that From Wolf to Woof is making everyone happy! This well-bound book tells a new origin myth — from the perspective of a modern dog — of how wolves learned to trust humans, for mutual benefit, and then eventually changing into the many varied dog breeds we know and love. It’s mythic yet realistic, as the story of cooperation is likely very much what happened. The story is well-told and the illustrations are top notch, and both my children enjoy reading it again and again — often with a dog sitting at their side.
From Wolf to Woof is a charming tale about the origin of one of our furriest friends.

Through richly detailed illustrations and simple text, Hudson Talbott entertains readers young and old with his tale about man's best friend.

I simply adore this book. One orphan wolf and orphan boy slowly form a connection and soon other lost boys join them. The circle begins to grow as boys and wolves form friendships and work together as a team to find food. It's a heartwarming tale that keeps readers engaged and is sure to be a fast favorite.

I highly recommend picking up a copy.
