Sequel to Sasha and the Wolfcub. Set in Russia in an age gone by, it charts the developing relationship between Sasha, now grown up, and his friend Ferdy the wolf.
In this sequel to Sasha and the Wolfcub, a new railway links Sasha’s village to the town, but this has severe implications for the village – not just environmental ones. When the townspeople discover the villagers are friendly with wolves, they are furious and want to kill the wolves which causes friction between village and townsfolk. Then a baby from the town is assumed drowned after a flood but she reappears, having been cared for by the wolves – all is resolved in this Romulus and Remus inspired story.
Ann Jungman manages to blend traditional folklore with contemporary humour in the form of a talking wolf, in a very readable and believable way.Klappentext:
Sasha and his family are excited about the railway coming through their remote village. But Ferdy isn't so sure. He is afraid that the railway will bring new people who do not know that the wolves and humans have learnt to live together without fear. With the long winter coming, how will Ferdy and his pack survive if they have to hide away? And how will newcomers manage, if they are too scared to go out?
Sasha and Ferdy's special friendship is put to the test in this sequel to 'Sasha and the Wolfcub'
