Robert Priest returns to children’s poetry in this lively collection, where he puts his pen to creating rhymes about “People Like You and Me,” and shows how everyone can make a difference in the world. From the builders of ancient Sumer to the return of wolves to Yellowstone National Park, Priest spins story-poems that tell how the world and all its peoples and creatures are interconnected and invites young readers to join in his wonder at this magic. The collection will again be illustrated by the wonderful pen and ink drawings of Joan Krygsman, who partnered with Priest on Rosa Rose. In The Wolf is Back, several of the poems will be presented along with a musical score to better delight listeners.
