Translated from French, Big Wolf & Little Wolf by Nadine Brun-Cosme is a touching book about the courage to make new friendships, adaptability, and open-mindedness.

“Big Wolf lived alone under his tree at the top of a hill. It had always been that way.” Until one day the solitary wolf spies a little blue wolf making his way towards him. They awkwardly share the space under the tree and watch each other. “Their looks were curious – not mean or suspicious at all.” 

Big Wolf was slightly disgruntled at Little Wolf invading his space. However, he shares his leaf blanket when he sees he is cold, lets him join in with his exercises and shares his food. When Little Wolf disappears the big wolf realises how much he misses him and how lonely he is. Little Wolf “had taken up a space in his heart. A lot of space.” Big Wolf waits through the change of the seasons until one spring day he sees a tiny blue dot. Little Wolf returns to the hill and so begins a new friendship.
