The Wolf Who Wanted to Change His Colour by Orianne Lallemand


The Wolf Who Wanted to Change His Colour by Orianne Lallemand

Mr. Wolf is in a very bad mood. This morning, he does not like his color anymore!He really wants to try another one, just to see how it is, to be like someone else. It seems to be a good idea, but HOW can he change his color? Mr. Wolf will ask himself many questions about who he really is. This is a simple color concept book with a moral: be happy with who you are. The illustrations are great attention grabbers as Wolf tries various methods to become something other than his boring gray. He paints himself green but looks like a fat frog; he rolls in mud, only to become smelly and itchy. He even steals feathers from an unhappy peacock to become multicolored, but all the attention he gets from flirtatious female wolves drives him crazy. Being his gray self turns out to be best. Tucked into each simple, colorful picture is a surprise that children will enjoy spotting: a fox hiding behind Wolf s full-length mirror; a frog in his bathroom sinks looking lovingly at his green fur, and so on. Children will love this story and be drawn to the bold cover, depicting a wolf puzzling over a handful of swatches against a bright, checkboard background.--School Library Journal

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
