The Lovereading4Kids comment

It’s all about the timing in this wonderfully funny picture book. In a cave lives a little creature, a little creature that never leaves its home - turn the page - because of a wolf. The wolf is fierce, determined and hungry and as days pass tries harder and harder to tempt the little creature out of the cave, with no success. All we see of the little creature is its eyes, gazing quietly out in marked contrast to the increasingly frenzied activity of the wolf. Of course there’s a twist coming, and when the little creature finally comes out to play the surprise will have everyone laughing. Rob Hodgson works the suspense brilliantly and this stylish picture is comic and satisfying. ~ Andrea Reece

Reviews

'Rob Hodgson's debut picture book is a laugh-out-loud story with a very BIG surprise that makes it perfect for fans of Jon Klassen and Chris Haughton. Accompanied with glorious artwork, bursting with colour and warmth, the story also features a hilarious little worm on every page.' * Book Trust * 'Combines suspense and wit with striking illustrations.' * The Guardian Best Books Guide 2017 *'
