The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse, Hardback Book

The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse Hardback

Illustrated by Jon Klassen


They may have been swallowed, but they have no intention of being eaten...

A new comedy from the unparalleled team of Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen. "A subversive delight ... an unexpected, hilarious collaboration" GuardianEarly one morning a mouse met a wolf and was quickly gobbled up... When a woeful mouse is swallowed up by a wolf, he quickly learns he is not alone: a duck has already set up digs and, boy, has that duck got it figured out!

Turns out it's pretty nice inside the belly of the beast - there's delicious food, elegant table settings and, best of all, dancing. And there's something more: no more fear of being eaten by a wolf!

Life's not so bad, considering the alternatives. That is, until a hunter shows up... With a nod to traditional fables and a wink to the reader, the award-winning Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen of Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, Extra Yarn and Triangle offer a tale of cooperation and creative cuisine that is sure to go down easy.
