Description



About the Book



When her parents find a baby wolf on their doorstep and decide to raise him as their own, Dot is certain he will eat them all up until a surprising encounter with a bear brings them closer together.



Book Synopsis



Families of all kinds will delight in this sweet New York Times bestselling tale of new babies, sibling rivalry, bravery, unconditional love...and veggies!

The Bunny family has adopted a wolf son, and daughter Dot is the only one who realizes Wolfie can--and might--eat them all up! Dot tries to get through to her parents, but they are too smitten to listen. A new brother takes getting used to, and when (in a twist of fate) it's Wolfie who's threatened, can Dot save the day?



Review Quotes




"A tongue-in-cheek tale of a wolf in Bunny clothing...Add to the growing collection of sibling stories...that delight and instruct."--Kirkus

"Dot's bunny ferocity adds a particularly enjoyable touch to the saga, as do stealthy touches of wit."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

* "This gets all the elements of the successful picture book just right: a familiar scenario (sibling rivalry), a scary adversary, a display of courage, and a happy ending. And then there's the art!...A crowd-pleaser for crowds big and small."--Booklist, starred review

* "Dyckman's (Tea Party Rules) rousing, warmhearted story opens as a family of city-dwelling bunnies discover a wolf cub in a basket on their front stoop. "He's going to eat us all up!" cries daughter Dot. But Papa proudly snaps pictures of Wolfie chowing down on carrots ("He's a good eater!"), and Mama's smitten, too. OHora's (Tyrannosaurus Wrecks!) distinctive folk-naif spreads poke gentle fun at hipster families--Papa and Mama are decked out in cardigans and argyle, while Dot and Wolfie shop at a food coop selling such wares as locally-sourced bamboo. More laughs come from the irresistible contrast between Dot's sweet bunny countenance and her furious glares of rage. "I knew it!" she hisses when Wolfie bares his fangs while they're shopping. But he's not baring them at Dot--he's worried about the huge bear behind her. In a gratifying showdown, Dot overpowers the bear ("Let him go!" she yells. "Or...I'll eat you all up!") while Wolfie proves he's not only trustworthy but full of love."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "Interspecies adoption puts a fresh spin on the new-baby theme...A treat of a picture book."--The Horn Book, starred review

* "The text is seamlessly integrated with the illustrations and uses various fonts to good effect. OHora's acrylic paintings are the heart of this tale. They clearly show everyone's feelings from fear to sadness to joy to anger to love and everything in between, and there are brilliant bits of humor and whimsy added to the mix. VERDICT: A great book for one-on-one sharing that's also sure to be a storytime hit."--SLJ, starred review

"A sunny reversal of the wolf-in-sheep's-clothing yarn."--USA Today

"The first fresh twist on new-baby angst I've seen in years...The text is pitch-perfect, and the art is its match."--Chicago Tribune
