The Wolf in Underpants by Wilfrid Lupano
Contributors Mayana Itoeiz,Paul Cuuet, and Nathan Sacks
In this witty graphic novel, a community of forest animals trades scary rumors about a nearby wolf. Some critters have even gone into business selling wolf traps and anti-wolf fences. But when the wolf appears in a pair of striped underpants, everyone rethinks their fears. This is a heartwarming story about understanding differences, told with an oddball sense of humor.
My thoughts on this book:
This book is laugh-out-loud hilarious!
A group of creatures living in a woodland community are on the lookout for the local wolf. They’re deathly afraid of him and now the whole community is equipped with anti-wolf fences, wolf traps, wolf-defense education class, and even wolf crime novels for entertainment.
“High above the forest lives the wolf. An icy cry. Crazy eyes.
In these woods, we know to move our butts when the wolf comes down to eat.”
Animals have disappeared and everyone wonders who’ll be next. All the creatures are living in fear and their days revolve around this. One day, the wolf shows up and he’s not what everyone expected. Everything becomes a disaster as they try to re-evaluate their purpose and decide what they’ll do with their lives now that they no longer need to live in fear.
My son and I were laughing throughout the book. The illustrations are perfect and the format keeps the book interesting with lots of little tidbits and clues. We were hoping the book would go on further and didn’t want it to end.
I think this book would be perfect for all young readers, especially those who struggle with reading. There are more illustrations than text in the book and it’s a quick, funny read. We’re looking forward to the next book.
I’d like to thank NetGalley for sharing this book with me in exchange for my honest opinions.
