Gulp, gulp, gulp: one toy after another disappears into the mouth of the hungry wolf. Now he’s almost full, just a last little fly for dessert―uh-oh!

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.

THE WOLF AND THE FLY is a board book that follows the wolf as he devours everything on this shelves. The wolf is feeling a bit peckish, so first he eats an apple, then a cat, and so on, until he eats a fly. The fly wriggles so much that he throws everything back up. Each page spread has a trailing sentence, so that you must turn the page to see what is missing and decide what he had eaten.

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.
