What Reviewers Are Saying
Fanelli has chosen a weird and surrealistic way to tell her story of a wolf who just wants to be friends. Using a variety of effects, she chops and changes the shape and appearance of words, spreads them over the page and sends them spinning off in different directions. Her pictures are compositions of cutouts, newspaper and magazine clippings. It's a brave idea, not wholly successful. The page is too distracting and the illustrations have a nightmarish quality - a Dali landscape which doesn't make very comfortable bedtime reading. (Kirkus UK)
Fanelli (My Map Book, 1995, etc.) turns the idea of the wolf at the door on its head in this offbeat story. Wolf goes to town to make some friends, but everyone is frightened of him, even when he puts on a mask. Discouraged, he wanders toward home, encounters a girl wolf (you can tell by her fur bows), and pours out all his troubles. The townspeople who were chasing him see the error of their ways, and everyone joins in a picnic with a family of wolves in the forest. Fanelli's art is characteristically quirky: bits of advertising and newsprint collage, scribbled line, matte color, and squiggly-type design. Not everyone will be enchanted; this is mostly for those who already find Fanelli's eccentricities winning. (Kirkus Reviews)
