Picture Book Review: Wolves, by Emily Gravett


Wolves, by Emily Gravett

WOLVES 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.)

Reading level: Ages 4 and up
Hardcover: 40 pages
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers (August 1, 2006)

My Review:
A very unique and humorous story.  A rabbit checks a book out of the library about wolves.  He reads it as he is walking along, oblivious to the fact that he is walking all over a wolf.  
I read this several times with my kids and it got funnier each time.  You definitely have to read it a couple of times to truly enjoy it.  

Illustrations: I loved the artwork. Gravett uses a combination of hand drawn artwork and photography to create her illustrations, and the effect is perfect for the story. I love the simple design and the white space used. It’s very effective for drawing your eye to where it needs to be. The artwork is simple and focuses on the information necessary to telling the story.

    Look at that wolf! It's huge! It makes it look so much cooler. Cute story. I like when authors have readers in their stories or the MC goes to the library.
