The Wolf Who Didn't Like to Read

Orianne Lallemand (Author) Eleonore Thuillier (Illustrator)


There once was a wolf whose appetite for books was insatiable. Big, small, fairy tales, dictionaries? He devoured them all! His taste for paper was only matched by his great aversion for reading. Reading was so boring! That is until Wolf found himself in the Country of Books where he had to help the librarian find 10 missing books. This story will help parents and educators address children's dislike for reading. It is also a fun way to be introduced to 10 great classic works in a fun entertaining way for children who are starting to turn pages rather than eat them! Works featured include Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Pinocchio, the Jungle Book.

About the Author

I live in Brittany, on a re-purposed farm full of joy and inspiration. The sun always shines and the ocean isn't far. What I need on a daily basis? Love, friends, books, and time to myself! And I need to move and be active, otherwise I get cranky! When I'm not writing, I'm looking after my large family!
Ever since she was a little girl, Eleonore loved drawing. After numerous lectures about the importance of bedtime stories given to her toys and dolls, Eleonore became a designer, first in the world of fashion before going back to her initial love for drawing monsters, wolves, princesses and witches! She now lives in the south of France with her 2 children and her 2 cats.


The Wolf Who Wanted to be an Artist: "The brightly-colored digital illustrations pop off the pages and are full of humor and expression."- Youth Services Book Review "kids with good reading skills and parents interested in unique read-alouds will find the story compelling and fun."-Midwest Book Review
The Wolf Who Wanted to Change his Color: "[The Wolf 's] teardrop-shaped body and uneven eyes give him a goofy appearance that matches his quirky personality. The emotive dialogue will elicit empathy as children learn both colors and self-acceptance."- Foreword Review 2015 "Lavishly illustrated with contemporary wolf portraits in seven different colors, this charming animal fable presents a memorable example of a path to self acceptance. Young children will enjoy reading this book with an adult, responding to the humor and colorful self portraits of the Wolf, who is indeed a very lovable character." Children's Bookwatch: June 2015 "Children will love this story and be drawn to the bold cover."- SLJ July 2015
The Wolf Who Visited the Land of Fairy Tales: "Thuillier's illustrations are delightful and fun, and the book is well paced and includes a recipe for the apple cake."- SLJ September 2016
