Sammeli is a young boy who likes adventure. It’s springwinter in Lapland and the sun has made a welcome return. Everything is warming up after the long, cold, polar night. Sammeli meets a stoat and imparts a little wisdom of his own, such as not to judge a book by it cover. Some books may be old and worn but that’s because they are well read, much loved and become very good friends, just like Mr Partanen.
