The unwitting wolf proves to be no match for the good intentions of these itching-sweater-knitting, off-key-singing, burnt-cookie-baking neighbors.

This is one of the best children's books I've ever read in my life. I LOVE it. I bought 3 so far¿ one for my niece, one for a friend, and one for myself. The story is just as clever as the illustration. The whole thing is so much fun. It's impossible to get tired of.
