LoveReading View on Silly Mr Wolf

This is a wonderfully silly, wonderfully funny picture book from the absolute master of the genre, Tony Ross. Mr Wolf is a tricky character, more than a match for his neighbours, a flock of sheep who – ulp! – provide most of his meals. They are shockingly easy to trick though: apparently you can fool some of the people all of the time. Even so, Mr Wolf comes to the sort of end he deserves, and it’s entirely his own fault. Giggles guaranteed on every page, and as always Ross tells his tale with visual and verbal flourish.

Silly Mr Wolf Synopsis

Years ago, Mr Wolf would dress up as a sheep and try to be their worst friend but now, the sheep's clothing is far too small for him, so he'll have to find new ways to get his dinner. A hilarious herd of sheep are constantly one step behind Mr Wolf, until he takes one step too far... A stranger-danger story with a classic comical tone and a laugh-out-loud ending from picture book genius Tony Ross.

About Tony Ross

Born in 1938 in Wandsworth, South London, Tony Ross never though about a career in art, but says he fell into it after his dream of being a cowboy disintegrated when a letter he wrote to John Wayne was never replied to. After Liverpool College of Art, Tony became an art director at an Advertising Agency but after a particularly bad day in the office he gave up his job to go into teaching at Manchester Polytechnic. His first book was published in 1976 and as well as his own, he has illustrated over 1000 books for authors such as Roald Dahl, David ...
