Small Wolf thinks being a wolf is great! That is, until one night when a shooting star falls from the sky, dramatically changing him into a human boy! He quickly adopts all the characteristics he thinks small boys have – constant room tidying, sitting very still and being seen but not heard. Small Wolf’s parents grow more and more desparate until Wise Old Wolf finds a magic bone to try and turn their son back into the wolf he once was. As Small Wolf delicately nibbles it, nothing happens and his parents are in despair. But then his fingernails start turning back into claws, his bushy tail reappears – Small Wolf is back!
