Mac Barnett: The Wolf, the Duck & the Mouse, illustrated by Jon Klassen
The long awaited new collaboration by two of the most popular picture book makers in the world is finally here! Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen have worked together on such brilliant books as Extra Yarn , Triangleand Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, and The Wolf, the Duck & the Mouse may be their best yet.
Early one morning, a mouse is gobbled up by a wolf. "Oh woe!" he cries. "Oh me!" He fears it is the end... until, that is, he meets a duck in the belly of the beast.
This book is full of Klassen and Barnett's trademark sly comedy and it represents both artists at a peak of their output. Barnett's prose is lyrical and fable-like, and Klassen's illustrations make beautiful use of a twilight colour palette, white space and textured washes. The Wolf, the Duck & the Mouse is set to become an instant classic of the genre.
