Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—Big Wolf lives alone under a tree at the top of a hill until one autumn day when Little Wolf comes along. At first he is wary of this stranger who silently joins him for exercises at the top of the tree, lunch at the base, and sleepy time against the trunk. But when Big Wolf goes for a walk and comes back to find Little Wolf gone, he realizes that "a little one, indeed a very little one, [has] taken up space in his heart. A lot of space." Big Wolf waits through a lonely winter, until one spring day a tiny dot in the distance slowly grows to become Little Wolf, returning at last, and a beautiful friendship begins. This translation has careful phrasing. Tallec's colorful illustrations play off the quiet dignity of the text, revealing emotion through the characters' stances and expressions, employing a sketchy painting style that brims with light.—Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD

I just can't say enough good things about this book. I fell in love immediately and found myself wanting more at the end. The illustrations, the story - lovely, wonderful, excellent! A stunning book with a simple message reminding us of the beauty of friendship.

Big Wolf quite contentedly lives alone under his tree at the top of a grassy hill. Each morning, he climbs the tree to perform his exercises, which is followed by freshly picked fruit for breakfast. After eating, he takes a long walk and enjoys the solitude. When darkness approaches, he snuggles up under his leaf blanket and settles in for the night. It has always been this way and Big Wolf has always felt satisfied.

Until one day, Big Wolf spots a blue wolf coming towards him in the distance, looking no bigger than a dot. He worries that this wolf will be bigger than him, but is reassured to discover this new wolf is indeed very small (and very blue). The wolves do not speak to each other, but are certainly aware of each other, sneaking sidelong glances. When night time approaches,Little Wolf remains, and Big Wolf shares a teeny tiny corner of his leaf blanket.

In the morning, Big Wolf resumes his typical morning routine, this time with Little Wolf copying his every move. He is careful to pick extra fruit to share for breakfast and finds himself enjoying the company. But when Big Wolf returns from his daily walk, there is no sign of his new friend. Immediately, Big Wolf feels uneasy and searches everywhere. When he can't find Little Wolf, he feels very sad. How is it possible that small a small wolf has taken up so much room in his heart?

When Little Wolf does return, Big Wolf's heart nearly leaps from his body with happiness.

We got this for my four year old son for Christmas, and he absolutely loves story. It is a sweet tale in which a lone big wolf has a new little wolf come into his life. At first, the big wolf is wary of the little wolf but grows to love him by the end of the story. My son identifies with the little wolf and to this day likes to call himself Little Wolf. The drawings are also beautiful and fit naturally with the story.

WONDERFUL story, awesome illustrations. Just an enjoyable, colorful book you can immerse yourself in. All about sharing and friendship and nowhere near overdoing it it with heavy-handedness like many books today. Just a great story that your child will love to have you read to him and you'll enjoy it just as much. Great storytelling!

The art work was first to capture my attention since I'm always looking for creative images to present to our grandchildren. The story is what kept me connected. This is a story that respects the deep thinking that children can do. We are Big Wolf. And we are Little Wolf.
