Wow. Amazing design & concept. Suspenseful and deliciously terrifying. *Not* for those who still sleep with cuddly bunnies. And not for those of us who take the characters seriously - after all, I hope we all know by now that wolves aren't evil and bunnies aren't adorable, but that all have their place in nature's scheme. This book is metaphor - so don't share it with your little ones until they are capable of grasping that. ( )

I liked this story and the (obvious to the reader) increasingly more obvious indicators that the rabbit might be in trouble. I think this would be fun to read to students and work in predictions or foreshadowing in stories.

Wolves was such a cute book! It is about a rabbit that went to the library to find a book about Wolves. AS he is reading the book, we see that the rabbit is walking in patches of fur. As the rabbit keeps reading he is so interested in the book that he doesn't notice that the wolf is right beside him. This book is full of suspense. The illustrations keep the readers entertained and wondering what will happen next! ( )

Rabbit went to the library to read a book. He got one about wolves. What he didn't know was that while he was reading the story the wolf got out. Will the wolf eat him or will the wolf be a vegetarian? I love this story because it is very funny and entertaining and the kids will enjoy it. I also really like how the book is a story within a story. It an amazing book to read. ( )

This was very cute story. This is a story with in a story. The rabbit went into the library and chose a book about wolves. As the rabbit reads the book, we start to see the rabbit in the wolves fur. This creates a little suspense to what will happen next. As the story progresses, rabbit is so focused on the fun facts about wolves he doesn't realize the wolf is close by.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I like how the story creates suspense on what will happen next. It was very fun and full of facts about wolves! Too cute! ( )

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.
