When Little Wolverine’s snow den melts on a hot day, he asks other animals for help and finds a place to sleep thanks to a friendly crow.
The animals don't know why the snow melted, but the book makes room for parents to improvise. The inspiration for the story came from an article about the effect of climate change on endangered species. Rather than offer solutions, the book ends symbolically, with Little Wolverine finding shelter in a tree. Protecting wilderness and planting trees are hopeful acts for a healthy future.
