For fans of The Girl Who Drank the Moon. A shimmering fairy tale with gorgeous, emotionally resonant writing and a strong commercial premise.
A captivating animal narrator ala A Wolf Called Wander. Animal perspectives are so hard to get right, and Karah Sutton absolutely nails it. Zima is both relatable and believably wolf-y.

Richly illustrated. Interior art brings the story to life, making for a luxe package that will stand out on the shelves.
Rooted in Russian folklore. The folkloric connection provides a jumping-off point for classroom discussions.
