Mr. Wolf and the Enormous Turnip by Jan Fearnley

Mr Wolf is off on another rip-roaring adventure. Will he ever get his spicy turnip stew? Mr Wolf is back, and he has one thing on his mind - a great big enormous turnip! When Mr Wolf finds an enormous turnip, it is just the thing to make his favourite supper - spicy turnip stew. But Mr Wolf needs some help. The turnip is stuck fast. Can the little frog with the sad tale help him? Jan Fearnley's Mr Wolf stories are perennially popular with children who love to share read-aloud stories. This is the follow-up picture book to Mr Wolf's Pancakes, with more humour and fun to make young readers howl with laughter. Praise for Mr Wolf's Pancakes: Mr Wolf leads the pack of the best picture books and destined to last and last. Times Education Supplement


The gastronomically-challenged Mr. Wolf is back, and he s as hungry and loveable as ever. Another laugh-out-loud tale from the author of the highly praised Mr. Wolf s Pancakes, shortlisted for the Children s Book Award, and Mr. Wolf and the Three Bears, winner of the AOI Gold Award.
