Wolfie

An Unlikely Hero


Formats & editions


I, The Wolf, am sick of being the bad guy. I’m taking over this book.

Dear Readers,

Fairytales are nonsense. They’re full of wolves pestering pigs and picking on sweet little girls in red hoods. But I would never do those things. I knit! I bake blueberry pie!


You know what I really want to do? I Want to rescue a princess!


And if I can’t? I quit!


Yours sincerely,

Wolfie

Wolfie may want to be a hero, but he’s about to discover that arguing with this book’s narrator is not the best way to improve his image…

About the Authors

Deborah Abela

After completing a teaching degree, Deb went to Africa where she was caught in a desert sandstorm, harassed by monkeys and thrown in jail … twice! She produced and wrote a national kids’ TV show before leaving to write twenty-six books including the Max Remy Superspy and Jasper Zammit (Soccer Legend) series and Grimsdon, New City and Final Storm, about kids living in a climate-changed world. Teresa A New Australian was inspired by her dad who was born in a cave during one of the heaviest bombing raids of World War II. The Stupendously Spectacular Spelling Bee and the sequel, The Most Marvelous International Bee, were inspired by her grade four teacher, Miss Gray. Her first picture book is Wolfie, An Unlikely Hero. She is a proud ambassador for the Premier’s Reading Challenge, Room to Read and Books in Homes. Deb’s won awards for her books but mostly hopes to be as brave as her characters.
