Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Paintings rich with feeling - Wolf in the Snow by Matthew Cordell

"The winter scenery in this book is eye-catching and the message it sends is heartwarming. It teaches a lesson of the importance of kindness and helping when needed. It’s definitely going to be added to our home library!" - Mischenko, Goodreads


Published: 2017

A girl is lost in a snowstorm. A wolf cub is lost, too. How will they find their way home?

Paintings rich with feeling tell this satisfying story of friendship and trust. Here is a book set on a wintry night that will spark imaginations and warm hearts, from Matthew Cordell, author of Trouble Gum and Another Brother.

"A near-wordless story of kindness repaid.
What distinguishes this book are the many feelings that Cordell’s pen-and-ink–with-watercolor illustrations capture so well—cold, fear, courage, exhaustion, relief—keeping readers hooked to the end." - Kirkus Review
