The perfect book for a snowy day in January! Bear and Wolf meet while taking a walk out in the forest, enjoying the gentle solitude of the lonesome woods, the freshly falling snow, the sharp bite of the winter air. Each soon discovers that the quiet company of a friend makes a winter walk even more enjoyable! A lovely tale of friendship, fate, and the passing of time paired with gorgeous colored pencil illustrations.

Bear and Wolf become unlikely companions one winter's evening when they discover each other out walking in the falling snow; they are young and curious, slipping easily into friendship as they amble along together, seeing new details in the snowy forest.

Together they spy an owl overhead, look deep into the frozen face of the lake, and contemplate the fish sleeping below the surface. Then it's time to say goodbye: for Bear to go home and hibernate with the family and for Wolf to run with the pack. Daniel Salmieri's debut as author/illustrator is a beautifully rendered story of friendship and the subtle rhythm of life when we are open to the world and to each other.
