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.

Early 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.

  • Fans of fractured fairy tales and fables will be satisfied by this delicious addition to the genre
  • Another brilliant book by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen, the pairing behind Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, Extra Yarn and Triangle
  • This is jacketed

This book is unusual and unexpected in it's narrative and will challenge students thinking patterns! I haven't read it aloud to my students yet but I think it will be more understandable by mid-Primary rather than younger readers but I may be wrong! Sometimes my Kinders and Preps surprise me.... The illustrations are outstanding and quirky.

"The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen is a subversive delight. [...] The earthy darkness of the wolf's interior contrasts with soft shades of moonlit forest in this unexpected, hilarious collaboration." * The Guardian *
A deliciously dark and completely absurd story... Told with devilish wit and illustrated with fearsome prowess this is contemporary fable telling at its very best. -- Booksniffer * WRD Magazie *
Jon Klassen and Mac Barnett are a match made in picturebook heaven. [...] it brilliantly champions the idea of the underdog [...] A treat for adults and children alike. * The Irish Times *
A hilarious and surreal story [...] A witty lesson in how to make the most of disaster. * The Herald *
As ever, Barnett and Klassen amusingly provoke readers to question apparent truths. Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading Pick of the Month * Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading Pick of the Month *
