Early one morning a mouse met a wolf and was quickly gobbled up...

When a woeful mouse is swallowed up by a wolf, he quickly learns he is not alone: a duck has already set up digs and, boy, has that duck got it figured out! Turns out it's pretty nice inside the belly of the beast - there's delicious food, elegant table settings and, best of all, dancing.

And there's something more: no more fear of being eaten by a wolf! Life's not so bad, considering the alternatives. That is, until a hunter shows up...

With a nod to traditional fables and a wink to the reader, the award-winning Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen of Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, Extra Yarn and Triangle offer a tale of cooperation and creative cuisine that is sure to go down easy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen is a subversive delight. [...] The earthy darkness of the wolf's interior contrasts with soft shades of moonlit forest in this unexpected, hilarious collaboration." * The Guardian *
A deliciously dark and completely absurd story... Told with devilish wit and illustrated with fearsome prowess this is contemporary fable telling at its very best. -- Booksniffer * WRD Magazie *
Jon Klassen and Mac Barnett are a match made in picturebook heaven. [...] it brilliantly champions the idea of the underdog [...] A treat for adults and children alike. * The Irish Times *
A hilarious and surreal story [...] A witty lesson in how to make the most of disaster. * The Herald *
As ever, Barnett and Klassen amusingly provoke readers to question apparent truths. Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading Pick of the Month * Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading Pick of the Month *
