Hanni the wolf pup has never been alone before, and now she's lost in the wilderness. She's too little and scared even to cry out for help! But Hanni soon learns to trust the world outside and the wolf inside--and finally discovers a howl within, long a deep, that brings her family to the rescue. From an award-winning novelist comes this thrilling picture-book tale, illustrated with dynamic paintings that capture the dramatic landscape of the far north.

Will Hobbs is the award-winning author of nineteen novels, including Far North, Crossing the Wire, and Take Me to the River.
Never Say Die began with the author's eleven-day raft trip in 2003 down the Firth River on the north slope of Canada's Yukon Territory. Ever since, Will has been closely following what scientists and Native hunters are reporting about climate change in the Arctic. When the first grolar bear turned up in the Canadian Arctic, he began to imagine one in a story set on the Firth River.
A graduate of Stanford University, Will lives with his wife, Jean, in Durango, Colorado.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-This fresh adventure story introduces some new elements to the ever-popular theme of losing and finding home. Here, a wolf cub and a sleepy brown bear play out the drama in Canada's vast Northwest Territories. Little Hanni (named for the Nahanni River) is frightened when she is separated from her pack during an outing. She is, however, a survivor, and on her journey home she learns some valuable lessons. She finds out that she can swim when she is forced to jump into the river just before the log she is riding goes over the falls. Next, she meets a large bear that brings her close to home and teaches her to use her sense of smell to guide her the rest of the way. When she finally reaches Howling Hill and is reunited with her family, she discovers that her wish has come true-she has grown up enough to howl and can join the pack in song. In the text, the water of Howling Hill is described as "hot" and "stinky;" unfortunately, no explanation is given for this and children will wonder why. The full-color oil paintings laid out in double-paged spreads give some idea of the grandeur of the area and its wildness. The details of the wolves' activities invite close inspection. The last illustration dramatically shows the animals howling into a blood-red dawn.
