Wolves is a very "meta" book. A rabbit checks out a book about wolves from the library, and soon we don't know what resides in that book and what resides in our book. The illustrations and use of collage/photography are the focal point of the story, and they are used in such a unique way that I had to pause and really look at each page. It is a quick read, and I imagine the intricacies of it might go over some young children's heads, but they will still enjoy it nonetheless. ( )

Well that was a delightfully harsh bit of reality for a children's picture book! ( )

The rabbit is reading all about wolves from a book it borrowed from the library: what they look like, where they live, what they eat. Soon enough it finds itself to be lunch.

I thought this book was clever in its design. A library book about a library book is an original idea for me.

But honestly, I was a weirdly uncomfortable when the rabbit got eaten. ( )

This book is about a rabbit that discovers a book about Wolves, that has a creative ending. The illustration to the this book is like you are reading a book inside of a book. ( )

A cute and silly story where a rabbit checks out and is completely wrapped up in a book about wolves...so much so that he is not at all aware of his surroundings and gets himself into a deadly predicament.

Book description
I really liked this one. I was not prepared for the first ending. I didn't pick up on that the wolf was stalking the rabbit until the page is torn. I thought that was in the rabbits head, but apparently not. I was a bit shocked. Then we get the second ending in which they become friends. Not all knowledge is true and sometimes, we defy knowledge in our uniqueness. Cleverly done, and it would be useful in a class that is studying the moving image on pages. This book has a lot of movement to them.
Un conejo se entera -leyendo- que a los lobos les gusta comer conejos.
