Tal from the Wolf Tribe is eight winters old. Every day, Dad and the other men go hunting. Tal is too young to go with them, but he doesn't agree with that! One day he goes out to pick berries for Mum, and meets an angry bear which licks its lips and creeps towards him. Suddenly, somebody appears on the scene at full speed. An arm stretches out, takes hold of Tal and pulls him away at the last moment!
It's a girl the same age as Tal. She is riding on a big sabre-toothed tiger, one of the most dangerous animals in existence. The girl is called Nea, and she is from the Mammoth Tribe, the Wolf Tribe's perpetual enemies. If Tal and Nea and the sabre-toothed tiger Shita are going to be friends, they will need to keep it very, very secret.
It was not easy being eight winters old in the Stone Age, but it was certainly exciting! Ulvegutten is the first book in the exciting easy-to-read series about Tal and Nea and the sabre-toothed tiger Shita from Tor Åge Bringsværd and Haakon Lie.
