Wolf's enjoying a nice snowy day inside, eating his milk and cookies, reading his books about wolves. Yet as he reads Wolf realizes something. Wolves in books have been getting a pretty bum rap. If they're not frightening boys who cry wolf then they're dressing up as grannies or swallowing live pigs.Read more ›
Footprints in the Snow was a delightful surprise to read. My children and I both fell in love with the story and read it again and again. It is one of those books that I hope everyone reads and loves so that it will become a classic and stick around for a long time.
The artwork is fantastic. I loved how the illustrations depicted Wolf's artwork and you could see his pencil in the corner of the page, or a paw, or some other artistic tool.
With lively, cheerful illustrations and an amusing story, this picture book will be a popular, entertaining addition to your bookshelf.
A cute picture book about a wolf that loves to read books about wolves but soon tires of them all being about nasty wolves; therefore he decides to write his own story about a nice wolf. His story begins with a wolf discovering some tracks in the snow. He decides to follow them and soon is asking different animals if the tracks belong to them because he wants to become a friend; each animal is suspicious of his intentions. Finally, the wolf finds a duck that admits the tracks are his at which point the wolf realizes how tempting the duck looks to eat. Fortunately, the wolf who is writing the story suddenly wakes up in his bathtub and in an aside says to the reader, "Pheeew! I almost let my story end with Mr. Nice Wolf being just as bad as all the other wolves!" The wolf gets out of the bathtub and starts to dry himself off when he hears a knock at the door. He glances out the door but all he sees are tracks, "Hmmmm. I wonder whose those could be?" The inventive front inside cover pages show shelves of books including a few that are titled, for example "Lord of the Wolves" and "Romeo and Wolflette" while the back inside cover pages show one distinct set of tracks in the snow with the wolf prints on top, and the wolf disappearing off the page. The illustrations are charming, colorful, and filled with little amusing details: the wolf is wearing a polka dot bowtie, a mouse is dipping a crumb in the wolf's polka dot drinking cup, and the wolf has a yellow rubber ducky in his bathtub.
