The characters in this book by NZ based author/illustrator Paul Beavis have a lot to say – and it’s not what you’d expect.
Picture a fairytale wolf who defies all stereotypes. Not only is he a polite and well spoken cravat-wearing wolf, but he loves salad with feta, and playing the violin. Along comes one determined young girl who is far from impressed by his un-wolflike behavior, and isn’t afraid to tell him so. In fact, she’s determined to change him into a ‘proper wolf’.
I won’t give away the ending but you might guess who has a lot to learn about accepting others just the way they are.
