Reviews

Kirkus Reviews

“Kids will readily relate to this time-consuming process of getting dressed. . . . Originally published in France, this vibrantly colored, vertically bound offering featuring a silly and slightly scary wolf will keep kids coming back for more.”—Kirkus Reviews

The New York Times Book Review

“This wonderful, extra-chunky board book reads vertically, with each tall spread showing a jaunty, grinning wolf in the stages of getting dressed [as] he’s transformed…into a thrillingly scary villain.”―The New York Times Book Review

Publishers Weekly

“The gentle narration and the wolf’s semi-clothed state create a sense of security, which makes the book’s last-page twist . . . hit its mark perfectly, delivering a just-scary-enough jolt to surprise and delight.”—starred, Publishers Weekly
