On the other side of the world, Koolee’s path to school takes her over the dust-dry roads of Australia. Koolee is an Aborigine, but their language is not on the timetable at school.

The big wolf leads a contented life: He reads books under his tree, grumbles over bills and listens to music, quite undisturbed. Until one fine morning the little wolf turns up and moves in with him. The little wolf listens to his records, turns the newspaper into paper planes and, to top it all, snores. The big wolf doesn’t need this kind of companionship. Or does he?
