A girl is lost in a snowstorm. A wolf cub is lost, too. How will they find their way home?
A little girl becomes a hero to a vulnerable wolf cub in this touching wordless picture book. When a blizzard whips up on her way home from school, the girl is concentrating on getting home... until she spots the cub, who is far to little to survive alone. So, fearlessly, the girl takes the cub over streams and past other dangers to return it to its mother. And when it turns out that the long walk has left the girl in her own predicament, the wolf pack comes together to return the favor.
Paintings rich with feeling tell a satisfying story of friendship and trust in this Caldecott Medal-winning picture book. Here is a book set on a wintry night that will spark imaginations and warm hearts.
"Caught in a blizzard on her way home from school, a girl in a red parka discovers a wolf pup left behind by its pack. Cordell's story is wordless, but there's a soundtrack: the cub whines, and distant howls reveal the pack's presence over the next hill.... Cozy vignettes, framed in rough circles, help reassure readers that the story will end well, and so does a tender opening portrait of the family. The girl's story is a hero's journey, and Cordell tells it with skill and heart." Publishers Weekly
