About the Book



Originally published: London: Macmillan Children's Books, 2011.



Book Synopsis



A giggles-guaranteed picture book from the acclaimed Emily Gravett, starring three little pigs and a wolf who (maybe) won't bite.

I can stand him on a stool!
I can dress him in a bow...
I can ride him like a horse but
WOLF WON'T BITE!

Come along on a wild circus adventure about three little pigs who have captured a wild wolf. They can make him do all sorts of tricks, but don't worry--he would NEVER bite.

From award-winning and beloved creator Emily Gravett, Wolf Won't Bite! contains charming text that begs to be read aloud, and quirky humor fills every page of this playful take on "The Three Little Pigs."



Review Quotes




"Readers who see themselves as pushed and prodded by similarly obnoxious adults will let out a sigh of relief when the wolf rebels."--Publishers Weekly

"Wolf Won't Bite! is an entertaining and original spin on the old wolf-and-pigs theme. It will delight children."--School Library Journal

"A welcome turnaround--and don't miss the closing endpapers. A slightly cryptic but satisfying wolf/pig reversal."--Kirkus Reviews

"Gravett's impeccable pacing, sly visual clues, and clever use of white space elevate this universal story of gloating gone wrong...is reminiscent of that of Falconer's Olivia, and it is quite possible that these three pigs would enjoy her friendship very much."--The Horn Book

"The text is appealingly rhythmic, and the repetition of the "wolf won't bite" will encourage children to join in the reading...The compositions are as bold as the saucy pigs themselves, and the pictures will translate as well to a crowd as they will to a single child. Wolf may not bite, but the kids will eat this up."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
