Footprints in the Snow by Mei Matsuoka

Matsuoka, Mei Footprints in the Snow. Henry Holt and Co.; Language~G, Sexual Content~G; Violence~PG. PICTURE BOOK.

Why do wolves get such a bad reputation?! The wolf in this story is out to prove the world wrong by writing his own story about a good little wolf who tries to find a new friend by following footprints in the snow. When he asks for help identifying the footprints no one will help him . . .because he is a bad wolf and they think he will just eat the poor creature. Will the little wolf ever prove that he can be good? This is a delightful tale with an unexpected twist that will leave kids speculating.
