Winter Shadow By Richard Knight and Richard Johnson
A gorgeous story about a young girl who finds wolf cub one snowy day and brings it up within the family, throughout the story both the girl and the wolf grow up. The story covers a number of messages including the wisdom of children, the transition of growing up and not being afraid. This atmospheric story in set in a snowy timeless landscape with depth and mystery unusual for a chapter book . I would recommend it to both boys and girls as an independent reader but it would also read well aloud for younger children and the whole family. .
