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.

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.

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.
