ABOUT THE BOOK: The One and Only Wolfgang 

From Instagram sensation Steve Greig and New York Times bestselling author Mary Rand Hess comes The One and Only Wolfgang. This humorous, heartwarming story about Greig’s real-life menagerie of senior rescue animals affirms that, in a family, everyone belongs. What makes a family? Is it sharing favorite foods, cuddling up for snuggle time, loving each other no matter what you look like in the morning? For Steve Greig’s oddly wonderful, real-life family of senior dogs, chickens, rabbits, and a pig named Bikini, family is all those things and then some! Meet the Wolfgang, a loveable bunch of animals belonging to Steve and each other. Greig looked for the most “unadoptable” animals and gave them a home. Appearing on the popular Instagram account Wolfgang2242 with close to 800 thousand fans and growing, this lovable bunch is now starring in their very first children’s book that showcases the importance of family. Featuring unique, whimsical art from Nadja Sarell combined with comical photographs of the Wolfgang, The One and Only Wolfgang will remind readers that no matter how old or how odd, everyone can find a place to belong.
