Loved the illustrations - a good book to talk about making the most of a not so great situation.

This book is cutting edge and retro at the same time. I'm not sure how that's possible, but it's true! Follow mouse and duck on a very strange adventure in the belly of wolf. As duck says, he may have been swallowed but at least he won't be eaten. Rollicking good fun by Barnett and Klassen!

Such a clever and interesting take on making the best of a bad situation. Made me laugh out loud.

If you like picture books that are a bit twisted and dark, you may love this one. It is certainly unique and not predictable! The whimsical illustrations perfectly match this quirky tale. This somewhat macabre book may not appeal to all children, but children and adults who like unconventional stories may like it a lot.

Lesson: Once you've EMBRACED the worst that life can throw at you and made the best of your options, your fears take a second-place seat. Pity the person who has never been "knocked off their feet." This is a charming children's book that ALL people would benefit from reading. The lesson I started with is not verbalized, per se;
it is my take-away from reading Barnett's book. I also loved the ending of why the wolf howls. :^)

Absolutely delightful! A great story to share with older preschoolers who don't mind someone getting eaten. I laughed out loud often and am in awe of this outlandish treat.

A dark, clever, and comical fable. My favourite Barnett and Klassen collaboration to date!

Adult "me" loved this deliciously bizarre story - and child "me" gobbled it up!

This story is so ridiculous and hilarious. Loved Jon Klassen's illustration.

quite imaginative. interesting take on making the most of the hand you've been dealt. not sure I like how the book ended, but would make for a great discussion with older kids about overcoming fears and facing the world.
