    Wolf Story

    The Wolf Story is one that never ends—if 5-year-old Michael has his way. This persistent child has an insatiable desire to hear stories about Waldo the wolf and his nemesis Rainbow the hen, and it’s lucky for us that he is so persuasive. Illustrated with stunning pen-and-ink drawings by legendary designer and artist Warren Chappell.
