(Use a dictionary to read the definition of runt)- “Runt -- any undersized animal, especially the smallest of the litter.” That would explain why King names his smallest offspring Runt when he is disappointed by the wolf’s tiny size at birth.  Runt is determined to earn his father’s love and respect.  But that is a tough order to fill when life in the wild is complete with danger, hunger, and even death.  Will Runt be able to prove himself to King and earn a more respectable name?  Read Runt by Marion Dane Bauer to discover how this young wolf finds his way in the wild.  (Deborah Wolfe, South Carolina Book Awards, 2006)
