Randomly remembered reading this book when I was little, and had to buy a cheap copy for the nostalgia! On an anthropomorphic level, poor wolf, but as a life lesson for young girls - stay clever, Polly, and keep the obnoxiously persistent wolves from the door!

I read this some years ago but although the same characters are featured, it isn't anything like Marianne Dreams. It takes place in the real world and is more about relationships of young teenagers.

I had it in hardcover with a different illustration, but am unable to add it here as I didn't bother to keep after reading.

Charming but a bit boring.
