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
