Wolf Won’t Bite! by Emily Gavett
Three cheeky little circus pigs make a wild wolf jump through hoops (literally), endure feats of astounding derring-do, and even withstand perilous games of dress-up. Safe in the thought that “Wolf Won’t Bite!” they even put their heads between his jaws . . . but can you push a wolf too far?
P3/4: ” Funny and short” “Not the best for our age but recommended for Nursery, P1 and P2″.

P3/4 “Strange – gave goosepimples. Unusual story in a good way”
“Lots of pages – fantastic – took you through her life”
“Spooky story – scary when the woman disappeared”
“Good – Good ending”
Starting a Series of thirteen books, all of which are in the eight hundred plus page count category, is a daunting experience. The book eases you in with great amounts of exposition that really can make you put the book down with the boredom of listening to a character divulge the entire history of a civilization in one sitting. The author is not alone in treating the reader like a moron Continue reading
