PreS-Gr 2—A popular children's book anti-hero from France attempts to make a cake even though he does not know how to bake. Wolf seeks help from familiar characters in the Land of Fairy Tales who all assume he is the Big Bad Wolf and initially refuse to help him. Wolf wins them over with kindness and the fairy-tale characters all contribute something to his cake, which he shares with his new friends at a tea party. The picture book is fairly predictable, but Thuillier's illustrations are delightful and fun, and the book is well paced and includes a recipe for the apple cake.
VERDICT An additional purchase.
