Wolf loved to eat. “As soon as he finished one meal, he began to think of the next.” So you can imagine how happy wolf was to spot a perfect, delicious chicken just when he was craving chicken stew. But this wolf didn’t just grab the chicken and run. He thought that a better idea would be to fatten up the bird. So far several days, he cooked and baked and left food at the chicken’s doorstep. And what do you suppose that he found when he finally arrived to pluck the chicken for his meal?
Keiko Kasza has illustrated this book with beautiful watercolors on wide open white pages. The characters of wolf and chicken are wonderfully captured by the illustrations. I especially liked the picture of wolf mixing pancake batter while holding the cookbook open with one foot.
This is a wonderful book that is filled with humor and is suitable for sharing with a small group.
