Overview

A little one’s unbridled enthusiasm is a mother’s special challenge in this tender, amusing story that offers a sweet final twist.

Wilf is a little mouse who is bursting with energy and full of fun. He loves to run and skip and climb and jump around. He’s so busy, in fact, that he just doesn’t have time to listen to his mother’s pleas to "Watch out, Wilf!" until it’s too late and — crash bang wallop! Uh-oh. What has Wilf done now? With affection and humor, Jan Fearnley paints an endearing portrait of an effusive, disaster-prone child and an ever-patient mom.

Wilf, a very energetic mouse who gets in a bit of trouble when he does not listen to his mother, makes her a special surprise.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Wilf is a winsome little mouse with large enthusiasm. He loves to jump, climb, skip, bounce, whirl and do anything to excess. The only trouble is that he does not like to fall. When, oh when will Wilf listen to his mother when she tells him to be more careful? But when the sweet rodent prepares—carefully, for once—a surprise for his Mom, her enthusiasm gets the best of her and—CRASH, BANG, WALLOP!—maybe Wilf's tendency toward joyful clumsiness runs in the family? Fearnley's colorful soft illustrations are so charming that they more than carry the lightweight plot. This book would be a nice addition to story time for preschoolers who are still learning about body awareness or for a gentle reminder between parent and child about the importance of listening. 2004, Candlewick Press, Ages 3 to 5.
—Judy Crowder
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Wilf is a little mouse who has a problem with listening. So, "Crash, bang, wallop!"-he's always having accidents. Each time his mother soothes him and gently cleans him up, she says, "I wish you'd listen to me." Wilf's enthusiastic misadventures are illustrated in large ink-and-watercolor paintings that are filled with movement and energy. The characters look like animals but move like people. The artist uses color delicately to create a small and perfect imaginary world brimming with naturalistic flora, where mice live in a pumpkin cottage with a blue front door. Children will readily identify with this dynamic little creature who manages to maintain his good humor after every mishap. They will also enjoy (and join in on) the refrain and find the role reversal at the end very satisfying. This is a great book to read aloud near Mother's Day, although the relationship between mother and son is timeless.-Jane Barrer, Washington Square Village Creative Steps, New York City Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Jan Fearnley was born and raised in the northeast of England, the youngest of six children. Before becoming a full-time writer and illustrator, she worked as a teacher and literacy advocate. She says, "One of the things (among many) that I treasure and adore about children I have known and worked with is their enthusiasm, particularly the sort of unbounded, clumsy, messy enthusiasm that just sweeps you off and carries you away into the joy of the moment, regardless of the consequences. I wanted Wilf to epitomize this." Jan Fearnley is the author of many books for children, including JUST LIKE YOU. She lives in England with her husband and two Cornish Rex cats.

    Wonderful!

    A wonderful book! We rented this from our local library and my 2-year-old son absolutely loves it! The pictures are great, the font size large, and the story lesson about listening to your Mom is great too! My son is very into his letters and reading, and often sits and reads books on his own. The great thing about this book is the HUGE font when 'Crash, Bang, Wallop' happens to Wilf! My son recognizes the big words and turns the page and reads them aloud himself. My husband was blown away the first time he heard it he though he was actually reading it! Despite the frequency of the reading of this book, I'm still not tired of it.
