This is a cute children’s book about a family of bunnies who one day discover a baby wolf sitting outside their front door. They then go on to raise the wolf as part of their family. Mama and Papa both immediately love the baby wolf as their own child. Big sister Dot, on the other hand, is a little wary of the small baby wolf. In the story she keeps saying “He’s going to eat us all up!” As the story goes on you see how attached little Wolfie is to his big sister. He follows her around and Dot complains “He’s drooling on me!” The family runs out of carrots and Dot and Wolfie go to the store to get more. While at the store big sister Dot defends her brother Wolfie against a bully. My children enjoyed listening to me read this story to them. And it is one of those children’s books that are cute for all ages. The part where little brother follows his big sister around everywhere and annoys her reminds me of my own kids. And the end is heartwarming when they come together as a family to work together to get rid of the bully.
‘They peeked. They gasped. It was a baby wolf!’ A bundle arrives at the Bunny family home. Inside is a baby wolf. Mama and Papa are smitten. But they’re so wrapped up in admiring and caring for Wolfie that they don’t listen to Dot’s warning that he’s going to eat them all up! Wolfie takes a shine to Dot, but she’s not a fan of him following her around and drooling on her. And as Wolfie grows, so does his appetite—will Dot learn to love Wolfie, or was she right all along?! This is such a cute and funny story and a new favourite of mine. I’m a big fan of Ame Dyckman’s books and this goes straight to the top. I absolutely love the gorgeous painterly style artwork and the wonderful colour scheme. A delightful little book. I can’t wait for HORRIBLE BEAR!
New life is something to celebrate. But in this book, Dot the bunny, does not have quite the same enthusiasm over sharing her life with a new baby brother. Ame Dyckman’s delightful approach to entertaining her young readers with humor and quick wit will charm. Dot gets a new little brother, a baby wolf. Dot's concern over the fact that her new brother may devour the bunny family goes unnoticed by her parents. Are Dot’s concerns justified or is she simply experiencing jealousy over the new addition? Zachariah OHora’s illustrations are distinctive, vibrant and perfectly capture the essence of the story. You’ll want to eat this book “all up” and read it over and over again.
