Great Wolf and the Good Woodsman
by Helen Hoover
illustrated by Charles Mikolaycak 1967
It's Christmas, a day when all woodland animals are friends. Deer, squirrel and chickadee have come to the Good Woodsman's house where he feeds them. Great Wolf hangs back because he knows the other animals are scared of him.
A nice story with a Russian flare, thanks to the illustrations. Sadly our copy is pretty beat up. Here are some more of the wonderful pictures.
