As winter reaches the arctic, a polar bear adopts an ice-floe-stranded wolf pup, saving his life and beginning a rhythm of care. “This quiet tale of kindness, adoption, and reciprocity uses sparse text to great effect among the crisp, wind-swept, snow-laden illustrations that practically crunch as the pages turn” (Kirkus). Crunch, crunch.
