Beautifully illustrated wordless picture book. A little girl gets lost in a blizzard and discovers a wolf pup that has been left behind by the pack. She safely helps the pup find the pack and then the pack helps the girl's family find her.
From Publisher's Weekly:
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.
