As a distant howl echoes through the forest, animals quickly stop what they're doing and run for home. Look out--Wolf's coming! As the shadowy figure gets closer and closer and the day draws to a close, the animals shut the door, pull the shades, and turn out the lights. Soon the wolf's glowing eyes appear at the window and the front door opens . . . But things are not as they seem in this suspenseful, clever story, and it's the reader who's in for the biggest surprise of all!

I read this to 3-5 year old children in story time. It has become one of my favorites!!
You can pull them right in and then there's a surprise ending, it was a fun read!

My grandsons love suspense in this book! It is their favorite book of all time. We also love finding the blue balloon on every page.

For ages 3-5. The wolf is coming and all the animals are running away as fast as they can, but you’re in for a big surprise.

Just happened to pick this up. It was an instant hit with our 2 1/2 year old daughter! She especially likes yelling "Surprise!" at the end.

The wolf looks like such a thug, so it's a nice surprise when things turn out different. I agree with the other comments, it's a good one to read out loud.

I used this for a family storytime (0-5 years). The kids eyes kept getting bigger and bigger as the wolf got closer and closer in the story. Talk about a tension builder. There was a big sigh of relief and a good laugh when we got to the "surprise" ending. They loved it!
