I received this book for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
When a Wolf Is Hungry by Christine Naumann-Villemin
Published August 7, 2017.
A darkly humorous tale with a twist ending
Edmond Bigsnout, lone wolf that he is, loves his solitary cabin in the woods. But lately he’s been craving urban rabbit for dinner, so he travels into the city to catch one. Unfortunately, the rabbit has a lot of neighbors—who mistake Edmond for a kind and helpful resident! Perhaps Edmond can become a good neighbor, despite his bad intentions.
Readers of all ages will devour this story about a wolf who decides that if you can’t eat them, join them.
This book is rather strange – dark humor I guess. Edmund the wolf is determined to find a city rabbit to eat. He starts out with a knife, but he forgets it in the elevator. Then he goes home for a chainsaw and someone borrows that from him. With each new weapon, someone in the apartment building interrupts his plans. They all think he’s a new neighbor, and they plan a rather nice surprise for him.
Maybe kids would find this book funny. I don’t know. I found it rather morbid, which usually doesn’t bother me, but this book rubbed me the wrong way. Perhaps because of the weapons? I’m not big on violence or weapons meant to cause violence.
