After trying unsuccessfully to blow down the Pygg brothers’ house of brick, Wilfong the wolf decides to wait them out; after all, they can’t stay inside forever. He’s soon less interested in eating the Pyggs than in joining all their fun, eagerly calling through the window as the brothers play games and tell jokes. Then winter comes and Wilfong freezes solid. With the arrival of spring it’s not just Wilfong but his relationship with the Pyggs that warms. The brothers aren’t ready to completely embrace Wilfong—he is a wolf after all—but they are willing to consider that he’s changed his ways. Wilfong proves he is trustworthy time and time again, and after he saves the brothers from a horde of hungry wolves, the Pyggs realize Wilfong is a friend indeed. Brenda Seabrooke’s charming chapter book features illustrations by Liz Callen that are perfectly suited to the lively and funny tenor of the story. (Ages 6–9)
