wolfSharing with Wolf by Melinda Szymanik & Nikki Slade Robinson. Pub. Scholastic, 2020.

A beautifully illustrated and  written hardback picture book for juniors and pre schoolers with a surprise ending. It will make you smile.

Wolf always needs a new housemate, he can’t afford to live alone. Lamb needs a place to stay so she can make her way in the world away from the flock. Wolf is cynical. he likes lamb but only “roasted, grilled or casseroled”. that is his nature.

Wolf warns lamb that it is not on but lamb persists. I wonder what is going to happen? You can have a wolf in sheep’s clothing but can you have a sheep in wolves clothing?

Beautifully structured written text with illustrations that appear to stand out on the page. Wolf and lamb are drawn in black pencil and you want to reach out and touch them on the page.

Lamb carries a bag with the message “to knit or not to knit, that is the question” while wolf carries a book titled 50 ways with mutton.

A very witty publication.
