Whiffy Wilson - The Wolf Who Wouldn't Go to School by Caryl Hart

There was a wolf called Wilson Who couldn't count to ten. He wouldn't learn to write his name. He never used a pen. Whiffy is certain that school isn't as fun as watching TV all day. But his best friend, Dotty, takes him by the paw and shows him just how wrong he is. Whiffy Wilson doesn't know how to hold a pen and has never looked in a book, but fortunately his friend Dotty is on hand to show him that school is fun. Soon, Whiffy is in his element, and when he gets a gold star for all his work he realises that school is the BEST THING EVER! Multi-award-winning author Caryl Hart, and artist Leonie Lord reunite in this fantastic companion title to Whiffy Wilson the Wolf Who Wouldn't Wash. With Caryl Hart's funny story and Leonie Lord's fabulous art, schooldays have never been such fun!
