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. ( )

Rabbit checks out a book about wolves from the library. As Rabbit reads the nonfiction book aloud, the illustrations depict a very fictional story as the wolves come out of the book. Fortunately, Gravett gives the reader an alternative ending with a vegetarian wolf.

This book is a cute one. Follow the bunnies journey as he reads a book about wolves, but don't miss out on what happens when the book comes to life! I would recommend this book for children of all ages. It has multiple endings, and keeps your attention wondering whats gonna happen next. It is a great book for looking at a story through the illustrations! ( )

I thought that this book was very unique! It has two different endings and it allows for children to use their imagination to figure out the possible endings. I would definitely read this book to my students and I loved the illustrations as well! ( )

This is the story of a rabbit who wants to learn about wolves. As he reads the story you see there really is a wolf following him. It has two endings which makes it appropriate for young children. I would read this if we were learning about wolves. ( )

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.
