Overview

Amaroq is a lively Eskimo boy who fives at the top of the world with his best friend, Nutik, the wolf pup. Amaroq was named after a great wolf leader; Nutik is the wolf leader's grandpup. The boy and the wolf pup are like brothers.

One day Amaroq and Nutik want to play football, but their ball has disappeared. What shall they do? Listening to and observing Nutik's wolf talk, Amaroq follows him outside. The two friends wander out onto the tundra, where there are no trees, no paths, and no landmarks to help them find their way home again. Amaroq is afraid they are lost, but then he remembers what the great wolf leader he was named after would do. By observing nature and following what it says, Amaroq and Nutik are safe again-but not before finding a surprise for both of them!

Amaroq and Nutik's adventure follows the first picture book about them, Nutik, the Wolf Pup, and continues the Arctic saga about these characters originally drawn from Julie's Wolf Pack, sequel to the Newbery Medal-winning Julie of the Wolves.
