Book cover illustration for Sasha and the Wolfcub. Boy befriends a little cub in a snowy forest
"You're not very big for a wolf," said Sasha.
"And you're not very big for a man," snapped the wolf.
Sasha has always been taught that wolves are dangerous, but when he finds himself lost out in the snow with Ferdy, a wolfcub, he discovers they are not so different. But how can he persuade his village that the wolves can be their friends?
