Description - Wolves by Emily Gravett
Rabbit borrows a book about wolves from the library. Straightforward enough. But it's not long before a sinister figure with sharp claws and a bushy tail starts to creep right off the pages. You won't believe your eyes - especially if you're a rabbit. Brilliantly witty, with amazing artwork, two surprise endings, plus fun novelty elements, Emily Gravett's Wolves is an outstanding picture book and winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal.

Book Review: Wolves by Emily Gravett - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (09 May 2013)
Wolves is a strange book and I was even a little shocked by this ending. Most kids books are nice and happy ending's but this book was a bit of a shocker.
Rabbit is researching Wolves at the library, it was like reading a book within a book. There is some information about wolves which is rather interesting. The author has a bit of a warped sense of humor and in the book there is actually an alternative ending, a happier one.
Nicely illustrated with some interactive pages at the end. A strange kids books, I would probably give this a miss, to scarey for young children.
