Rabbit borrows a book about wolves from the library. Straightforward enough. But it's not long before a sinister figure with sharp claws and a bushy tail starts to creep right off the pages. You won't believe your eyes especially if you're a rabbit.

Brilliantly witty, with amazing artwork, two surprise endings, plus fun novelty elements, "Wolves" created a real buzz of excitement among critics and booksellers alike on first publication in 2005.

What do wolves really like to eat? It isn’t little girls in red hoods. Rabbits shouldn’t believe what they read in fairy tales, but this book has the facts. (This book follows the National Carroticulum.)

Reviews

Barnes and Noble

This imaginative, cleverly illustrated picture book follows a rabbit who goes to his local “burrowing” library to check out a book on wolves. As he immerses himself in the book, he fails to notice that the characters have actually come alive. Wolves follow the bunny everywhere until, in a final moment of jeopardy, readers see only the book that our hero was reading, slashed to bits. Filled with factual information about wolves, lots of sly humor, a reassuring alternate ending, and expressive, mixed-media art, this book delivers on many levels—and will appeal to all kinds of kids.
