Mr Wolf and the Enormous Turnip by Jan Fearnley

A brilliantly funny take on well-loved fairy tales such as The 3 Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood from Jan Fearnley. 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.
