Klassen and Barnett Collab Again!

The Wolf, The Duck & The Mouse, Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen
We thoroughly enjoyed and still enjoy the fruits of other Klassen and Barnett collaborations (like Triangle, Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, and all the Hat stories) -- the humour is so quirky and fun!  So when we saw The Wolf, the Duck & The Mouse fresh-out this month we were delighted to discover it abounds with the same quirky fun and a tight little fable to boot.  For such a short book, there is a very clear narrative and some pleasantly surprising developments, all enhanced by detailed, comical, earthy illustrations (such a great combo!).  It's the kind of book parents and children both enjoy reading and it looks great on the coffee table!  You can check out Barnett and Klassen's trailer for this absurd and funny book here.
