Sixth Edition (1986-2000):

Edition Notes: Cover art by Robert Depew. The last hand painted cover, and the first foray into a more cartoon oriented style to appeal to an even younger Wolf Cub Scout. 224 pages, 5 1/4” x 8”. Illustrations are paintings and natural color ink drawings by Robert Depew. It was his first version of Akela.

Historical Notes: Yet again, age requirements were adjusted, and the Wolf Cub Scout Book adjusted with them. Because a boy could become a Cub Scout if he completed the first grade or was eight years old, it was possible for a boy as young as 6 1/2 to join Cub Scouting.

Quote: You and other boys in your den will have fun getting ready for the pack meeting in many of your den meetings. Cub Scouting is fun, and much of that fun starts in your den. What do you do at a den meeting? Lots of things. You’d better be on time or you will miss something.
