Mr. Wolf's Pancakes by Jan Fearnley

The Lovereading4Kids comment

A welcome reissue of a favourite story for all young readers who like their food and who understand the importance of sharing! Mr Wolf loves pancakes. He’s sure he can make himself a tasty batch but he is not certain of the recipe. Perhaps his neighbours can help? When no one offers to help him, Mr Wolf takes control and makes his own pancakes. They are delicious. And guess who wants to eat them? Gentle illustrations mach the story perfectly.


Mr. Wolf's Pancakes by Jan Fearnley


Kids will love Fearnley's use of favorite characters as well as her sympathetic wolf and the savory surprise ending. Chipper watercolors depict a sunny storybook town where denizens shop at Old Mother Hubbard's General Store and Simple Simon's Pie & Cake Emporium. A gleeful twist on a nursery staple. -- Publishers Weekly
