The Lovereading4Kids comment

For an original, witty look at sibling rivalry, Wolfie the Bunny takes the biscuit (or carrot to accurately reflect the content). The Bunny family come home to find a bundle on their doorstep – it’s a baby wolf! They immediately decide to adopt and everyone loves little Wolfie, except Dot, who is convinced her new baby brother is going to eat them all up. Dot’s agitation and frustration – brilliantly rendered by illustrator Zachariah OHora – is wonderful to see, and the story is very funny indeed. An encounter with someone big and nasty in the carrot patch allows Dot and Wolfie to show their true colours and brings it all to a very warm and satisfying conclusion. This quirky story will have everyone laughing. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Wolfie the Bunny by Ame Dyckman

The Bunny family has adopted a wolf son, and daughter Dot is the only one who realises Wolfie is going to eat them all up! Dot tries to get through to her parents, but they are too smitten to listen. A new brother takes getting used to and when (in a twist of fate) it's Wolfie who's threatened, will his big sister Dot save the day?
