In a small village in the snowy north, Maria stumbles upon a mysterious grey bundle, covered in wintry snow - an abandoned wolf cub! Her friends and neighbours are troubled when she rescues the cub, questioning the wisdom of her act. Even Grandfather is hesitant to support her plan to nurse the cub to health, but soon Maria and Shadow warm the hearts of almost every villager. Then, a mysterious woman tells a story about a boy raised by wolves. Shadow howls for the first time, and disappears. Will he ever come back? Beautifully illustrated, this touching story explores the delicate balance between humans and nature, and between the individual and community. Ages 6-10.
