Book Review :: The Wolf, The Duck & The Mouse

The Wolf, The Duck & The Mouse - Mac Barnett & Jon Klassen

"They may have been swallowed, but they have no intention of being eaten... A new comedy from the unparalleled team of Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen."

Any collab between Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen is obviously gonna be quirky.  This title is no exception.  There's a slightly different flavour to this one.  It has the feel of a fable, or fairytale reimagining.  It's delightfully surprise-filled.  Twists and turns abound.  The illustrations are more cluttered than others by Klassen.  Admittedly, these are not my favourite of his, but I was smitten with the wolf stomach interior settings.  Sounds weird, but that's half the charm!  We will always be up for anything produced by these two.  If you feel the same, The Wolf, The Duck & the Mouse is a guaranteed bedtime fave.
