About the Book

Little Wolf’s ditties – his observations on life told in verse form.

Little Wolf is on the move. Following the huge success of Little Wolf's Postbag World Book Day edition which was top of the paperbacks for two weeks, knocking Harry Potter and Delia Smith from the top position, Little Wolf is fast becoming the character of the 21st Century.

Little Wolf’s Book of Peoms is a paperback original full of Little Wolf's ditties. Letters home to Mum and Dad start and end this hilarious collection of rhyming observations on life. All Little Wolf's friends and family are featured, including his cuz and best-friend Yeller, his little brother Smellybreff, Stubbs Crow and Normus Bear. Here's a taster:

Hello Mister Hedgehog,
Can I hold your coat?
Then you won't get stuck
half-way down my throat!.
[only kidding not really]

Little Wolf's book of peoms is sure to appeal to all his many fans, and tempt new readers into his world. This collection will also appeal to new, younger readers who cannot manage a full length novel. The author has road-tested all the rhymes in schools from nursery to secondary!

And look out for Little Wolf, Pack Leader, the new novel coming later this year.

Ian Whybrow's many popular successes range from picture books to novels for older children. Best known for his original humour, he has a brilliant ear for voices, and takes pride in the fact that his work reads aloud very well. 'I loved being read to as a child,' he says. 'And I loved the sense that my parents were enjoying it too. For me, that's the acid test for any book – that there's something in it for everyone to enjoy.’
