From the moment Trouble stumbled from his den, the coyote pup’s curiosity has put him at risk. Between poking his nose into bee hive and spying on racoons, nothing fascinates him more than humans and their machines. Eager to see more, Trouble stows away in a pickup truck and ends up at a farmer’s market in the heart of New York City. Entranced by new smells and abundant snacks, Trouble is sure he has time to explore and still make it home by moonlight—until he gets pelted by onions, chased through the subway, trapped on an elevator, and lost in Central Park!

At first, Trouble howls for his family each night, but soon he can’t dream of leaving the friends he’s made in the park: a prankster crow, a timid opossum, a poetic poodle, and a junior explorer named Amelia. But nothing wild can stay. And when word gets out that a coyote is loose in the city, Trouble must choose between the risks of being caught and the dangers of a long journey home.

Based on true stories of wild animals who find their way into urban settings, this accessible, literary novel is perfect for fans of classic animal stories and readers eager to go exploring with friends knowing home is just a howl away.
