    Hilarious! Mac and Jon at their best! This will make for a laugh out loud read aloud!...
  • Laura Harrison
    An absolutely gorgeous picture book. Good story that I wish was a little longer. Is it Caldecott worthy? You bet it is!...

    Wonderfully bizarre and delightfully surreal. As a very young tot, I probably would have been freaked out by the theme of the wolf gobbling everyone up, but as an adult I got the whacked-out sense of humor. Older kids who can understand it (and their parents) will get a kick out of this one. ...

Cle...

    How does Mac Barnett find the time to keep cranking out such great material? The Wolf, The Duck, and The Mouse is his fifth picture book of this year alone. Five books in one year?!?!?! That’s crazy prolific! And this one is probably my favorite all, which is saying something, seeing as Triangl...

    Put aside your science for a moment. No, a duck and a mouse can't live in a wolf's stomach. It just doesn't work that way. But pretend that they can. It makes so much sense to feel safest inside the worst thing that can happen! (Just ask Kimmy Schmidt. She'd get along splendidly with these two.) Wor...
