Deep in the woods, an unfortunate mouse is devoured by a wolf… But that’s not the end of the story! In this wonderfully wacky picture book, the mouse teams up with a similarly-plighted duck to make the best of a bad situation and turn the wolf’s stomach into a cozy home. When a hunter threatens their newfound comfort, the pair must sally forth to defend their property! As the wise duck states, “I may have been swallowed, but I have no intention of being eaten.”
When a woeful mouse is swallowed by a wolf, he quickly learns he is not alone: a duck has already set up digs, and, boy, has that duck got it figured out! Turns out its pretty nice in there, with delicious food and elegant table settings, courtesy of the wolfs unchecked gluttony. And theres something even better: no more fear of being eaten by a wolf! In fact, life is pretty good, until a hunter shows up. . . . With a nod to traditional fables and a wink to the reader, the award-winning Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen offer a tale of cooperation and creative cuisine that is sure to go down easy.
This is a story about a duck and mouse who get swallowed by a wolf, and then decide to live in his belly.
