Bookbug Book of the Month: Mr Wolf's Pancakes
Mr Wolf's Pancakes by Jan Fearnley
Join Mr Wolf in the kitchen as he gets into trouble while making pancakes! Mr Wolf fancies some tasty pancakes but he doesn’t know how to make them. Asking his neighbours is no use – they’re a mean and horrible lot who refuse to help. Poor Mr Wolf. He has to work it out, all by himself. So what happens when those nasty neighbours want to help Mr Wolf eat his delicious pancakes . . .?
'I should be fed up of this book, having read it repeatedly with my youngest daughter between the ages of 2 and 4. I’m sure many parents will identify with the nightly chants of 'read it again' but Mr Wolf is far too endearing a character to hold a grudge against.
Mr Wolf’s Pancakes has great illustrations and a number of repetitive words and phrases that children can join in with. My daughter – who was doing a lot of baking at nursery at the time – also enjoyed spotting all the familiar characters in the book, including Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Pigs. The story finishes with a surprising but satisfying ending that hopefully adults will enjoy too – even after the 1000th read!'
