Eric is far from Home on a camping trip to Isle Royale National Park with his family. He hopes to meet new animals, but he does not want to meet a wolf. The sky fairy has other plans and sends a wolf, Canis Lupis, to find Eric. Through the visit, Eric learns that wolves are not "big and bad," but are an important part of a balanced ecology. When he sees the fish his father has caught, he realizes that, in some ways, people are predators, too. To order this title autographed, contact the author through this site.

Eric reached into his pocket. His fingers tingled when they touched his enchanted leaf. He could talk to animals when he wished on it. He and his parents had passed a beaver pond hiking to the campsite. Maybe he would go talk to the beavers. If he saw one of those big bad wolves he heard about in stories, he could wish himself away from it.
