The Wolf, The Duck & The Mouse by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen / ISBN 9780763677541 / 40-page hardcover from Candlewick
"A subversive delight ... an unexpected, hilarious collaboration" --The Guardian
This is a story about a duck and mouse who get swallowed by a wolf, and then decide to live in his belly.
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.
