Book Review - Is That You, Wolf?: BEWARE! Not a Bedtime Story

About the Book
Brave little Piglet thinks a wolf is hiding somewhere on the farm, and he's looking for him. When kids open this book, will they be as brave as piglet? Putting an original twist on the touch-and-feel format, this book takes young readers along with Piglet on his search.

  • Kids are invited to slide a hand into cardboard pockets on the book's illustrations. 
  • Is the wolf hiding in one of them? 
In one pocket kids' hands reach into the farmer's haystack where they touch soft fur. Is it a wolf, or is it only the farmer's cat? Another pocket produces jagged points that might be the wolf's claws. . . then another has a sticky surface that might be his tongue. The fourth hides a rough surface that might be the wolf's feet. . . and the last, a silky surface that might be his nose! But so far, nobody has seen a wolf. Then, just as Piglet and his friends are about to give up, kids open to the final two-page spread and get a scary pop-up surprise.

My Take on the Book
My kids like books that engage them and my youngest loves books that have lift-the-flaps. While this book does not have life-the-flaps per se, you are engaged in the story and you have to be brave in putting your hand in the flaps of the book to see what is waiting. The story was cute, but I would warn, as the title implies, this is not a bedtime story as for especially young children, this could scare them, especially with the surprise in the end. The story itself was wonderful and the illustrations just pop off the page. This is a great story to share with the whole family!
