Publisher : Wisdom Tales ( Oct .,2015)
A heart warming tale about an unlikely friendship and letting go. The story of a tribal boy called Two Birds and his wolf friend.Meeting at a tender age they form a beautiful relationship. Through his wolf friend the very backward boy finds his place among his people, he was able to form many new friendships, receives respect and do things he was unable to do before.
Then the time comes for the tamed wolf to answer the call of his pack. But is Two Birds ready to let go of his beloved friend?
Two Birds; a Pueblo Indian and his friend live in an era about five hundred years ago in the south west desert,. with his tribe.Notes about this setting, historical and cultural are available in the book. The book also reminded me a bit of the Franco-Belgian comic book series Yakari. Which is based on Sioux tribe around the 16th century.
Detailed illustrations in pastel base captures the magical setting and the emotional theme of the story well.It also delivers the message of being responsible and letting go.
