Civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. dreamed that children would one day live in a nation where they would not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. He hated bullies and violence and worked for change through peaceful means. Today we take time to remind ourselves that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Thank you for your work and wisdom, Dr. King!
As far back as Callum can really remember, he's been living in the Wild as the furless mascot of a wolf pack. But when his pack sends him back to live with his own kind—humans—fitting in is quite a challenge. He doesn't remember English very well, so he accidentally says his name is "Clam." He's spent most of his life eating fresh-killed elk, so dining with vegetarians is tricky. And when he tries to impress the Alpha student in the school cafeteria by stealing food, people seem offended!
