In Lesson for the Wolf, young readers meet a wolf who spends his days admiring all the other animals of the tundra. Not content to simply be a wolf, happy and hunting with his pack, he watches the owls, wolverines, and caribou with envy, wishing that he could be like them. Wishing that he could be anything other than a wolf.

But when the magic of the Land finally grants his wish, this wolf finds out that what he admires may not be what he really wants in the end.
