Review & Giveaway: Exploring values with The Wolf series of books

The Wolf series is all about the adventures of a grumpy and disgruntled Wolf who discovers through many unfortunate mishaps the value of friendship, self-acceptance and other such values.

Written by French author Orianne Lallemand, this series has been translated into 14 different languages around the world.

One of our favourite books in this series is The Wolf Who Wanted to Change his Colour. The kids enjoy the book because of the vibrant illustrations (which runs through all five book in the series), and because Wolf gets up to all kinds of funny business just to get a taste of how it’s like being a different colour.

Every single day, he tries something new. Such as taking an icy bath in order to turn blue…

And plucking roses from gardens and covering himself with pink petals.

Vera is particularly tickled by this part because she can identify with the wolf’s dressing up to be like someone else.

Of course, in the end, Wolf learns to be content with the grey colour of his fur, which opens up the door to talk about loving ourselves just the way we are, and accepting the way that God has made us.

We also enjoyed The Wolf Who Did Not Want to Walk Anymore. A simple story, the Wolf decides one day to stop walking altogether and try out alternative means of transportation every month. He tries the mountain bike, a motorcar, a motorcyle, a train, an aeroplane, a boat and even a princess coach (that unfortunately turns into a pumpkin at midnight) and Santa’s sleigh!

Alas, he still ends up in a sorry state after travelling on each one of these transportation modes.

He finally comes to realise that nothing quite beats relying on his own two feet.

Quite a good story for little pre-schoolers who like to complain after a few minutes of walking huh?

There are a total of 5 books in this series, and the other titles are The Wolf Who Loved Himself Too Much, The Wolf Who Searched for a Girlfriend, and The Wolf Who Wanted to be an Artist. You can check them out here.

    I would like to win this as my 3yr old loves to read. He would always ask us to read before his nap and bedtime. He can remember all the stories he was read to and can read the books based on memory. He loves books and this would add on his collection.

    i will like to win for my kids as they love to hear me telling them stories, these colorful illustrations also will attract their attention too.

    Would love to win a set because my kids love reading.

    While the 7yo is reading chapter books alot of the times, she still loves illustrated books alot. I like that illustration helps little children see more into the story with the help of imagination.

    The 5yo is starting a slow but steady pace to read for himself. Though he can read, he is still very much happy just flipping books to look at pictures.

    Hope to win a set of books which i know both kiddos will totally immerse themselves in for a good few more yrs in my house. Thanks for hosting the giveaway.

    Both my 6 year old twin boys can read and they love to read! They, too, appreciate the illustrations and would tell me how interesting both the story and illustrations are. I would very much love to win The Wolf series of books for my children, for them to appreciate both the values as well as the illustrations featured in the books. Thank you!
