Lee Allen’s The Little White Wolf is a story about a white wolf Leesu, the runt of the litter of gray wolves. The other wolves tease Leesu because of his color and smaller size, so much so that Leesu decides to leave the pack and go out on his own. As the pack prepares for winter, Leesu is unable to hunt due to his coloring and grows weak, but when winter comes, Leesu’s color becomes the ultimate advantage. He is able to catch rabbits and grow stronger. Soon he is able to save his sister wolf Eele who had fallen through the ice, taking advantage of his small size and weight. By the following spring, the pack has come to understand and appreciate Leesu’s differences and that he, too, has a place in nature’s plan.

The Little White Wolf is a hearty read about understanding differences and appreciating the strengths that might be different from your own. The book is full of detailed tableau illustrations, giving it a graphic feel. There is a natural element to this book that captures the spirit of the wolf pack and the reality of hunting to survive. Lee Allen tells this story of personal characteristics and how they fit into the natural world as strengths in a plot filled with drama, suspense, and action. I enjoyed the way that he illustrated the important lesson of strength in uniqueness through the eyes of this young wolf. Leesu learns that he has power once he understands just how to use the gifts he was born with.
