The Wolf and the Fly
The Wolf and the Fly combines story and guessing game. Together you can guess which object on the shelf will be eaten next, then, when everything re-emerges, the game starts anew.
This is an original and delightful guessing, memory, observation and naming game from award-winning author and illustrator Antje Damm, whose The Visitor was a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year.
What I loved: It's a simple story, and there's a lot of fun in trying to figure out what has changed from the shelves. The book does not tell you, but instead, you must remember and notice for a small memory game.
What left me wanting more: This is not a great book for sensitive children, as the wolf eats a cat, bird, duck, and so on - and it also ends with him throwing everything back up.
Final verdict: THE WOLF AND THE FLY does well on giving a small memory game, but may be better for less sensitive readers.
