Synopsis

A Well-Mannered Young Wolf by Jean Leroy

A hilarious story about why manners matter One morning, a young wolf eagerly sets out on his first hunting trip. But before he can devour his prey, he must honour their final wishes, just as his parents taught him to do. But the wolf's would-be meals aren't quite as honourable as he is! Can common courtesy prove effective amidst the wild laws of nature? Perfect for fans of Jon Klassen, this wryly humorous book demonstrates that good manners can bring unexpected results.

Reviews

Publishers Weekly(STARRED review) This wicked gem of a story from Leroy and Maudet proves that manners matter, even when one isn't doing something terribly polite. . . . Maudet's airy, lighthearted cartooning bolsters the comic timing of Leroy's fablelike tale. Booklist (STARRED review) A palette of rich reds, yellows and browns against plentiful white spaced pages contribute to this cockeyed tale of politeness gone awry. Klassen fans rejoice-another twisted ending!
