Bear and Wolf is a quiet, meditative walk through a snowy forest with two friends who have a love of cold and silence in common. Salmieri's expressive illustrations lend an air of mystery and warmth to this spellbinding wintry stroll.— From Hannah DeCamp

"Stunning, serene and philosophical"--Maria Russo, The New York Times
Bear and Wolf become unlikely companions one winter's evening when they discover each other out walking in the falling snow; they are young and curious, slipping easily into friendship as they amble along together, seeing new details in the snowy forest.
Together they spy an owl overhead, look deep into the frozen face of the lake, and contemplate the fish sleeping below the surface. Then it's time to say goodbye: for Bear to go home and hibernate with the family and for Wolf to run with the pack. Daniel Salmieri's debut as author/illustrator is a beautifully rendered story of friendship and the subtle rhythm of life when we are open to the world and to each other.
