This book is called, Mr Wolf's Pancakes, and it's written and illustrated by Jan Fearnley. Have you read the title in Braille, running up the side of the book? It's a great story, with wonderful pictures that I'm going to tell you all about. And there's a moral to this story something that we can learn from, "Be nice to your neighbours when they ask for help or else!", and we'll find out why in the story.
The front cover of the book shows the wonderful Mr Wolf holding a plate stacked high with pancakes. He's a really cuddly sort of wolf, with a fluffy face, pointy ears, a big nose and a BIG smiley mouth with not a sharp tooth in sight. He's wearing a rather splendid blue shirt with big white spots, and, as he's been cooking, he's got the sleeves rolled up and he's wearing an apron with "I heart NY" on it. Do you know what that stands for? It's quite a common logo; it means "I love New York". The plate that Mr Wolf's holding is piled with flibbery-flobbery pancakes possibly not the most perfect looking ones, but absolutely..
