Footprints in the Snow by Mei Matsuoka
Book DescriptionWolf is feeling badly represented - all the wolves he has ever read about are nasty, scary and greedy, so to set the record straight he decides to write a story about a nice wolf. In his story, Mr Nice Wolf sets off to find the owner of footprints leading through the forest, as he wants to find a new friend. The other animals he meets along the way are wary and will not help him, but Nice Mr Wolf persists and eventually finds, Duck. But Duck looks so fat and juicy that Mr Nice Wolf's wolfish instincts nearly get the better of him. Fortunately, a knock at the door brings Wolf back to his senses, but just who is at the door and how will Wolf react?

US Kirkus Review » When Wolf decides to rehabilitate all the "nasty, scary, and greedy" storybook wolves with one of his own, he begins the tale of Mr. Nice Wolf, who follows a set of footprints in the snow in the hopes of finding a new friend. Overtures to a squirrel, a rabbit and a frog are met with suspicion, but Mr. Nice Wolf persists until he sees a big brown duck on a pond - but "the duck looked so fat, juicy...and mouthwateringly tasty" that Wolf's literary ambitions are dashed when, overcome, he jumps into the bathtub in the hopes of eating his own secondary character. Matsuoka's stylized illustrations and tongue-in-cheek tale make for a positive tonic in a season distinguished by sweetness. (Picture book. 5-9) (Kirkus Reviews)
