Mr Wolf's Pancakes by Jan Fearnley


Mr Wolf's Pancakes by Jan Fearnley

Join Mr Wolf in the kitchen as he gets into trouble while making pancakes! Mr Wolf fancies some tasty pancakes but he doesn't know how to make them. Asking his neighbours is no use - they're a mean and horrible lot who refuse to help. Poor Mr Wolf. He has to work it out, all by himself. So what happens when those nasty neighbours want to help Mr Wolf eat his delicious pancakes ...? Jan Fearnley's Mr Wolf stories are perennially popular with children who love to share read-aloud stories. Mr Wolf's Pancakes is packed with enough fun and humour to have young readers howling with laughter. The perfect pancake day picture book. 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


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
