When Manny Wolf sees an ad in the paper announcing “Wolf Wanted” he responds right away, only to realize the company is looking for a real wolf. Luckily for Manny, so many wolves respond to the ad that he is hired to answer all the letters. As Manny reads between the lines of the wolves’ letters, with their glowing descriptions of themselves, he realizes that all the applicants are famous fictional wolves! Finding no suitable candidates, Manny finally rewrites the ad, clarifying that a real wolf is needed so that a documentary can be made to show people what real wolves are like and how different they are from their big, bad fictional counterparts. Mixing fantasy and reality with zany illustrations, this hilarious story highlights the very serious risk of the extinction of wolves worldwide.
Great Item! Love it!
Although Manny Wolf was more man than wolf, he still decided to respond to a job ad seeking a wolf. After all, he had the Wolf name, he understood the instructions about sending a CV and cover letter, and he really needed a job. It turns out that even though the company really did want an actual wolf, they still hired Manny. A large number of wolves had applied for the job, and the company needed someone to read and answer all their letters.

Not only did Manny have excellent writing skills, he also knew his wolves. So when the big bad wolves from various fairy tales and fables wrote seemingly innocent inquiries, Manny could see their cunning ways and reply accordingly. It took many such responses for Manny to figure out he was having trouble finding the perfect candidate because the job ad was too vague. Could he rectify the situation?

Wolf Wanted provides children with a humorous and somewhat unusual description of the job search process and the role of want ads. Although the book has mostly a tongue-in-cheek approach, it transitions rather quickly at the end to a more serious look at the endangerment of wolves around the world. Younger children may find this transition confusing, while older children should be able to get past this literary twist and appreciate the lessons both on job search and on wildlife preservation.
