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.
