Big Wolf is a loner and not so sure what to make of the little "dot" that he sees approaching his tree one day. Instead of keeping it at bay, however, Big Wolf lets the little wolf approach and, in fact, becomes quite fond of the little fella. But even Big Wolf doesn't know how fond he is of his new friend until little wolf disappears and the worry sets in. My favorite part is when Big Wolf realizes that, ". . . a little one, indeed a very little one, had taken up space in his heart. A lot of space." Do yourself a favor and check out this treasure about a pair of friends who come to realize that their differences don't really matter one little bit.
