A story set in a Russian winter. Sasha takes his father's sleigh and drives far outside the village. When the sleigh overturns in the snow, Sasha seeks shelter in a little wooden hut. There he finds a fierce wolfcub with bright shining eyes. Ferdy is no ordinary wolfcub - he can talk!
'YOU'RE NOT VERY BIG FOR A WOLF,' SAID SASHA. 'AND YOU'RE NOT VERY BIG FOR A MAN', SNAPPED THE WOLF. Sasha is always being warned about wolves -- they're cruel and dangerous, especially when hungry. But then he gets lost in the snow!and a little wolfcub roams too far from his pack. Both must forget the warnings if they are to survive a snowy Russian winter. The two form a lasting friendship and prove to both their families that wolves and humans 'can' live together, without fear!and with fun!
