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. ( )

This is one of my favorites I loved this book, very cute, funny and creative. This book bring to light all the information we don't know that can be just a book away from us. We might just find out we are someone else's food! Fun book for kids!

The illustrations in this book bring us on more of a journey than the words, as a young rabbit reads a book about the details of wolves, only to realize at the very end that wolves eat RABBITS! The textures of paper cut outs, sketched pencil, and layered fabric give the illustrations dept. The disclaimer at the end about no rabbits being harmed during the making of the book and the offering of an alternative ending is hilarious.

What happens when a rabbit checks out a book from the library about wolves? In this clever, suspenseful story, he not only learns all about his natural predator, he finds out that he is on the menu! A story within a story, this book provides a great example for budding writers of how to use suspense and foreshadowing for dramatic effect. Students will enjoy making predictions as well as the idea providing alternate endings in books.

This book is about a rabbit that goes to the library to pick out a book. He chooses a book about wolves. It is a story within a story. I did not like the fact that it had an alternate ending because i felt like it took away from the finality of the book. To me, it made the book seem incomplete. Not one of my favorites. ( )

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.
