This is a story about an inquisitive little wolf cub called Rugmo, who is eager to know just what lies on the other side of the fence surrounding the reservation he and his family live on. "Nothing a wolf needs" his mother had said. Inevitably, the occasion arises when Rugmo spots a hole in the same fence. Despite his mother's previous warning, Rugmo, unable to resist the challenge of the unknown, courageously squeezes through the gap and his adventure begins. In a very short space of time he experiences hunger, friendship and danger, and realises that, although he is having a very exciting time, home may well be the better place to be. This is a nice little story and very well-written, and the illustrations are endearing. There is an illustration on every page enabling very young children to follow the story quite easily. Once hooked, the story's message is not hard to understand either; listen to your parents - they know the dangers out there in the `real' world! The message also fosters daring and inquisitiveness - which is also a good thing. The ending was a surprise; I didn't expect that, it was really sweet. Nice story-telling and great pictures along with a clear message
My wee boy loved this story and has asked for me to read it to him on several occasions. Bought for the Kindle its accessible all the time whether on the kindle, iPhone or iPad so if he choses that as a story at last minute its always to hand.
