Sophy doesn’t know how to fit in. She tries to talk at school but the words get stuck in her throat and everyone laughs and whispers behind her back. Upset and alone, Sophy hides away in her room. But then an extraordinary thing happens…
Sophy is whisked away to a magical snowy land where she meets a wolf and her cub. The unlikely trio roll, run and howl together, playing happily in the snow. Sophy has found friends and nothing can ruin her day… until a big, angry bear appears. But Sophy finally finds her voice and finds the courage she's been looking for all along.
This is a story of overcoming the isolating feeling of being shy, finding friends and most importantly, finding your voice.
