Description-

  • What's the time, Mr Wolf? It's story time with Debi Gliori!

    Accompany Mr Wolf as he goes about his daily routine from breakfast to bedtime - and get to know the real Mr Wolf! Little ones will enjoy recognising familiar faces from a plethora of nursery rhymes, including Little Red Riding Hood (masquerading as the post girl), three cheeky little pigs (who make prank calls), a cat who's a dab hand at the fiddle, plus four and twenty blackbirds . . .

    An enchantingly original story inspired by the well-known playground tag game, this is also perfect for practising telling the time. The stunning artwork reveals something new with every reading and the many fabulous details will keep you turning the pages again and again.


    Brilliantly read by Amelia Fox. Please note that audio is not supported by all devices, please consult your user manual for confirmation.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    September 17, 2012
    In the variation on the game of tag that shares its name with this book (better known in the U.S. as “What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?”), children ask the “wolf” for the time, moving closer with each answer until “dinnertime” sends them scrambling. Gliori’s clever riff imagines recognizable fairy tale characters asking Mr. Wolf the time each hour, starting at seven a.m. The answers Gliori’s wolf provides are generally grouchy (“It’s time for bacon sandwiches,” he tells the giggling Three Little Pigs), and with good reason: he believes they have all forgotten his birthday. Although the surprise party plot is familiar, Gliori (The Scariest Thing of All) packs her version with visual and textual allusions and characters children can easily identify. When Mr. Wolf goes to his cupboard for a snack he finds that “even his dish has run off with his spoon!” (oddly, in the accompanying illustration, the former appears to have kidnapped the latter). Gliori’s charming, detailed watercolor-and-ink illustrations add to the story’s humor; her occasional use of silhouette is especially skillful and fun. Ages 4–8.
