This book is a great read aloud and generated a lot of laughter in my class, as well as a few gasps of shock at the ending.
Wolf is looking for a housemate and tries everything to deter sheep from wanting to share, because wolves and sheep don’t mix.
The illustrations to this book are wonderful and remind me very much of Lauren Child. They add to the comedic storyline of the text and portray really likeable characters.
Those of us with a dry sense of humour will love this book, and when sharing with other teachers it got quite a few chuckles. The text is beautifully written with very subtle humour, so you kind of know what is coming at the end, although you expect the worst, you hope for the best.
This book was a complete hit at Remarkables with both teachers and students.
