Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-The first book follows a boy who hates numbers until a special birthday present allows him to discover how important they are. The colorful, childlike cartoons support the action. The concept is relayed well enough though the story itself is not particularly inspired. The second story is disappointing. A ravenous Mrs. Wolf finds a duck egg and resolves to fatten the emerging duckling for dinner. She spends days at the hot stove making pancakes, jam tarts, and chocolate muffins. Later, they picnic with sandwiches and coffee. Then, instead of wanting to eat the little creature, she realizes she has become very attached to it. This is one dumb wolf and one confusing story. Why is she starving if she has so much food around her? Endpapers in both volumes provide ideas on sharing the books with youngsters.

Format: Paperback
I found this book to be a little misleading...I loved the illustrations - they are darling and sweet and well done. But I found the story line a little too much for my 4 year old. The story is about a wolf who raises a baby duck - not because she loves it, but in order to fatten it up and make a nice juicy dinner for herself. Should I eat it now, or wait until it's bigger so it makes a bigger meal? I know, I know...real wolves eat real ducks in the real world, but I felt uncomfortable reading this storyline to my child at this point. Maybe for ages 5 or 6 and up.

We have checked this book out over and over from the library (...) and all three of my kids love it. Its a great read aloud (especially if you do the voices funny) it makes us laugh every time. Its a very sweet story. We are going to get our own copy so we can read it whenever we want!
