Summary
Meet Homer, a dog who heads to camp to live like a wolf! Here's the perfect book for the legions of kids out there who love dogs and funny books.

Homer is a dog . . . but he also secretly fancies himself part wolf. So when an invitation to attend WOLF CAMP ("Where every dog can live as a wolf for a week") falls out of his kibble bag one morning, he's determined to go. After his people finally agree, Homer boards the bus bound for Wolf Camp, along with fellow campers Trixie and Rex. They're greeted on the other end by wolf counselors Fang and Grrr ("they seem nice"), and what follows is an array of wolf activities, including learning to howl, mark, and hunt. Of course, Homer's a little homesick at times, and the food isn't very good, but that just makes heading home all the sweeter.

Perfect for all those kids anticipating camp themselves, Zuill's debut introduces a charmer of a dog and puts him in some laugh-out-loud scenarios.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Homer is a good dog, but sometimes his behavior gets a little wolfish (or so he likes to think). All dogs have a bit of wolf in them, he says. It's been proven by science. When Homer catches wind of a special Wolf Camp, he is desperate to go, and his people agree. Camp is led by two counselors, Fang and Grrr (They seem nice), and they teach Homer and other wannabe wolves how to hunt and howl. It's not the easiest adjustment, but eventually Homer settles in and learns some skills he can take back home. Zuill's watercolor illustrations depict Homer as large-snouted and big-eyed, in comic contrast to the larger, slightly more menacing wolf counselors. Full-page illustrations, packed with details and funny asides, show Homer and other dogs as they slowly improve their wilderness skills. Kids with camp jitters of their own will laugh out loud at Homer's antics as he overcomes his nervousness in pursuit of his dream, and they'll enjoy watching his transition from plain old Homer to honorary wolf.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2016 Booklist"
