Rabbit decides to read a book about wolves. While reading through the pages, whatever Rabbit is reading about is in the page with him. It was more of a book inside a book. However, when rabbit finds out what wolves eat it shows him eaten and gone. But, the next page does give a better ending story for the people who were upset with the ending. Very cute book. ( )

A very clever story that is quite informative of the nature of wolves and rabbits! The illustrations are fabulous and demonstrate how the book calls attention to itself as a book. ( )

Rabbit has found a fascinating book about wolves at the library, but as he reads it, something strange occurs. ( )

This story is a great example to use when discussing books having more than one story line. The rabbit is reading about wolves - nonfiction book- while walking. He is not paying attention to where he is going, and a wolf is stalking him. The illustrations make this book a memorable one. The ending will cause children to shout out in surprise, and they will like the idea of an alternate ending (for those who are a little squeamish). The story is a great example of metafiction because the book calls attention to itself as a book. It can be used for many different age groups- they will get different things from the story. I noticed there is even a Spanish version! ( )

Wolves is a intricate story about a rabbit who wants to know more about wolves only to fall into the story himself, where he either becomes dinner or gains a new friend- depending on the ending you're more comfortable with.

I would use this book for all grade levels. Very entertaining and a great way to discuss perception and illusions with students. ( )

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.
