Sure to strike a chord with anyone who has both a pet and a young child, Wolf Won't Bite! by Emily Gravett is a very funny and playful story with a snappy ending!

"A welcome turnaround—and don't miss the closing endpapers. A slightly cryptic but satisfying wolf/pig reversal."--Kirkus Reviews
"Readers who see themselves as pushed and prodded by similarly obnoxious adults will let out a sigh of relief when the wolf rebels."--Publishers Weekly
"Gravett’s impeccable pacing, sly visual clues, and clever use of white space elevate this universal story of gloating gone wrong...is reminiscent of that of Falconer’s Olivia, and it is quite possible that these three pigs would enjoy her friendship very much."--The Horn Book
"Wolf Won’t Bite! is an entertaining and original spin on the old wolf-and-pigs theme. It will delight children."--School Library Journal
"The text is appealingly rhythmic, and the repetition of the “wolf won’t bite” will encourage children to join in the reading...The compositions are as bold as the saucy pigs themselves, and the pictures will translate as well to a crowd as they will to a single child. Wolf may not bite, but the kids will eat this up."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
