There's a wolf in the woods and everyone says: "She's big and she's bad, she's old and she's hairy. Best leave her alone, she's mean and she's SCARY!"
When the little animals hear that a big, bad wolf lives in their forest, they decide to get a closer look. Squirrel, Crow, Badger, and the other animals sneak up on Grandma Wolf's house, where they find her fast asleep. Brave Piglet shouts, "What's the time, Grandma Wolf?" and the fun begins. All the animals take a turn asking the question, creeping closer and closer. As the excitement mounts, children will delight in discovering the surprise Grandma Wolf has in store for the curious animals.
Ken Brown's vivid watercolors perfectly complement this engaging story. What's the Time, Grandma Wolf? is also based on a popular classic game. Readers can look on the back flap for the rules.
"Good fun." "Young readers will feel a note of pleasing apprehension...but never enough to stir terror. The repetitions may even provoke readers to chime in and Brown has provided the rules for a game...that kids can play on their own." "Brown takes this game of tag and turns it into something quite delightful. The watercolor art is top-notch, with every character humorously distinctive. His depiction of Grandma is a particularly fine mixture of menace and sly good humor. A fun read-aloud."
