Wolfie the Bunny (Ame Dyckman)

We started off, before we read this book, by talking about funny names our parents call us. I told them that when our daughter is cranky, we call her Jillzilla (her name is Jill). This story was written because the author had a daughter that they called Wolfie when she was cranky. We had a good laugh about it.

There were a few pictures in here that are quite interesting that my students pointed out (they're so good at that!). On one page, the shadow of the wolf looks much more ferocious than what it is reflecting. We talked about whether or not it's a real shadow or if it is reflecting what the illustrator and author thought the main character was seeing.

Goodreads summary:

The Bunny family has adopted a wolf son, and daughter Dot is the only one who realizes Wolfie can--and might--eat them all up! Dot tries to get through to her parents, but they are too smitten to listen. A new brother takes getting used to, and when (in a twist of fate) it's Wolfie who's threatened, can Dot save the day?
