This series looks at animals that live in groups, describing how they live within their community and how their survival depends on the members of the group working together.

Planned with reference to the Key Stage 2 national curriculum, this title looks at how wolves work together to survive in their habitat. It explains how they find food, bring up their young and defend themselves against predators. It also shows how factors such as the environment and the availability of resources shape the physical and behavioural characteristics of wolves. Pages are illustrated with full colour photographs and specially commissioned artworks suitable for readers of seven and above.
