Horn Book Review

In Banks's gentle story about a loving, if unconventional, parent-child relationship, an Arctic wolf pup stranded on an ice floe is rescued by a polar bear who recognizes what he needs: "I am not your mother...but I can cuddle you and keep you safe." Stoop's captivating mixed-media-on-plywood illustrations, with their delicate lines and visible woodgrain texture, capture both the characters' trusting bond and the harsh setting's beauty.
