Wolfie the bunny by Ame Dyckman; illustrated by Zachariah O’Hora (2015)

[Published by Little, Brown and Company]

wolfieI was familiar with the concept of a wolf in sheep’s clothing, but a wolf in bunny’s clothing? That’s a new (and hilarious) one.

When the Bunny family discover a baby-wolfy-bundle outside their door, the only one not fooled by his cuteness is Dot, “He’s going to eat us all up!” Mama and Papa bunny are so smitten, their obliviousness to danger knows no bounds.

Wolfie grows steadily and begins to eat the family out of carrots. On a trip to the carrot patch to replenish supplies, Dot is forced to take Wolfie with her. When a hungry bear enters the scene, it turns out Dot is more of a protective big sister than she realised.IMG_1705

Dot is awesomeness personified. I love everything she says, “I’ve got my eye on you, Buster!” Every inch of this great book is beautifully illustrated. It really is all of my favourite things!

      • It was for a family story time, which has kids from infant through about six or seven. I have also used similar books like That is Not a Good idea (by Mo Willems) with third graders at a school I volunteer at. They love them, too!
