Product Details


Amusing and endearing in equal measure, the detailed mixed-media illustrations use light beautifully in the outdoor scenes and effectively in the cafeteria-line picture, where the wolf’s shadow reveals his identity. The straightforward story unfolds with simplicity, wit, and a certain irony based on the sheep’s knowledge of the wolf’s secret. While their awareness of his duplicity gives them the upper hand, their decision to befriend a would-be enemy makes them completely lovable. A well-crafted picture book that’s great fun for reading aloud.
—Booklist (starred review)

A wolf in sheep’s clothing gets the wool pulled over its eyes… Giggle-inducing illustrations depict the wolf helping the sheep wash dishes, do laundry, bake, cut wood, enjoy exercise class and shuffleboard, and read to youngsters…This amiable tale comically explores how love and acceptance can turn a dedicated curmudgeon’s stony heart to mush. The dynamic, cartoonish illustrations are the real draw and will capture kids’ chuckling attention…Kids will wolf this one down—and won’t feel sheepish about it.
