    >Non-Fiction: NEVER CRY WOLF.We studied it in school, along with most of Mowat's other work. I think they made a movie, too; I remember him eating mice to prove that the wolves subsisted off of those, not the caribou.

    >The only one I've got is Never Cry Wolf! But I've been mulling over giving Hardy another chance next year, and now I keep seeing him mentioned in blog posts. I think the universe is telling me something. 😉

He is one of my least favorite authors.Memory, I remember that part!Eva, I read all of Hardy as an adolescent, which makes the moodiness easier to take.
