Praise for Full Moon Pups

An SCBWI Charlotte and Wilbur Award for Compassion for Animals Honor Book

"The lightly fictionalized narrative introduces children to the wolves and the phases of the moon, which goes through one complete cycle as the story progresses . . . The illustrations effectively showcase both the wolves and the moon, while the rhythmic, rhyming verses include just enough information about the pups to interest young children." --Booklist

"Irresistibly adorable." --Kirkus Reviews

"Scanlon shines new light on a keystone species' life cycle through the subtle framing of a lunar cycle. The text's tightly structured rhyming stanzas, softened by sweet alliteration and an earnest tone, lend well to a thoughtful, informational storytime itinerary . . . Groenink's use of soft textures, diffused light, and striking combinations of blues offset by warm hues, creates a sequence of breathtaking art." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Rhyming quatrains by Garton Scanlon trace the birth and early lives of a litter of wolf cubs in this closely observed picture book marked by the moon's phases . . . Lush, deep blue multimedia spreads splashed with sunset tints by Groenink convey the majestic sweep of mountains and pine forests, and the animated facial expressions of the approachable-looking wolves." --Publishers Weekly
