Join us at The Book Cellar as Kelly Leigh Miller presents her debut book, I Am a Wolf!
In this pet adoption story that's as laugh-out-loud funny as it is heart-tugging, a dog who insists she's a wolf finds the perfect home with a young girl who sees past her prickly personality.
ABOUT THE BOOK: When a particularly growly pup finds herself in an animal shelter, she insists that she is a wolf—a lone wolf. After all, she's not sweet, she's not cute, and she is just fine on her own! Luckily, there's one little girl at the shelter who knows that sometimes, good dogs act bad when they feel afraid and that extending a little kindness can help even the most wolfish pup at the pound let down her guard.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Kelly Leigh Miller is an author and illustrator. Although I Am A Wolf is her debut picture book, Kelly has amassed quite a following with her quirky and relatable webcomics. She lives in Chicago, IL with Frankie, her lovable bad-dog-turned-good, the inspiration for I am a Wolf.
BASED ON AUTHOR’S DOG ADOPTION STORY: Miller’s debut picture book is based on her the adoption of her own rescue dog, Frankie. “She used to be a very reactive dog that was found on the streets as a puppy. She was afraid of everything, but from the moment we met her, there was an instant connection... Since it was late, we asked the shelter if we came back the next morning if she would be there or if someone else would adopt her, to which the shelter told us ‘Oh don't worry, no one ever asks for her.’ We ended up adopting her that night… Some [dogs] don't remember their past, but the ones who do just need some extra love, care, and training.”
