From the author of the international bestselling picture book Poo Bum, as seen on Netflix.
Poo Bum is children’s favourite cheeky rabbit! This time Simon returns in Wooolf!, a twist on the classic cry wolf story. With a clear parenting message, Wooolf will have children back for repeat readings.
Once there was a little rabbit who does only what he wants.
When his mother asked him to tidy his room he cried, “Wooolf! The wolf is coming!" and, when she ran away, he did whatever he wanted.
One day he did a wee where he wanted, and the wolf came to get him. "Wooolf!" he cried, but his mother didn't fall for that.
The wolf got him!
It was just Simon's father in a wolf mask. Simon promised never to cry wolf again. But when his mother opened the cupboard in the morning, a wolf cried "Awwoooo!"
The Simon picture book series is intelligent, funny and adored by toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children. While the surprise ending will have the whole family in hysterics, the message is clear, Simon knows perfectly well how to behave when he wants to. But it’s hard when there are so many funny pranks to play.
Perfect to read aloud and giggle together as a family or for beginning readers who will enjoy the bold and simple text.
“Likely to stop even non-bookish kids in their tracks” The Guardian, The Best Picture books for Children.
