"NICE WORK, LITTLE WOLF!" by Hilda Offen


Email this review


Little Wolf's mother is on the way for nails to mend their tumbledown house when he hops over a fence and lands in the lazy pigs' family; he's promptly entrapped by their demands, passed from Pop through Mom to two fat piglets, who give Little Wolf his orders. As the tasks grow, so does he: From fetching the paper, he goes on to building a pool and a new house before (now fully grown) his patience breaks and he chases out his tormenters and wails for his mother--who turns up to share the fine new digs. Often illustrates her delightful turnabout tale in cheery, deftly limned pen and watercolor, her complacent pigs and amusing details echoing Leslie Brooke. Good story, good fun.
