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.
