One bright, clear Sunday morning, Edmund Bigsnout, love wolf, found himself very, very hungry. Hungry for a city bunny. So, Edmond Bigsnout grabbed a knife from his kitchen, hopped on his bike, and headed for the city in search of the perfect city bunny.
Edmond Bigsnout is the classic, and classy, hungry wolf on the prowl for a big, juicy bunny to have for lunch. As with most stories featuring a wolf on the hunt, Edmond must face many obstacles to obtain his goal.
In the city, Edmond finds the perfect bunny, but he encounters multiple obstacles in the form of the bunny’s neighbors and must start over from the beginning in another attempt.
I found this book to be interesting and my children seem to enjoy it well enough. Originally published in France, therefore I am also assuming it was published in French, it is difficult to tell that it is a translation. Even the words in the illustrations have been converted to English.
The illustrations are quaint and the colors drab, creating the mood of the wolf on the hunt. Small bits of lively color throughout, foreshadow the happy ending to come.
Personally, this will not become a favorite read of mine, simply because, to me, there seems to have been something lost in translation. My children do not feel the same way, and I am sure there are many who agree with them.
I would recommend this book to children who enjoy “The Three Little Pigs” and “Little Red Riding Hood.”
I received my copy of this book from LibraryThing.com for the sole purpose of providing an honest review. I am currently seeking permission from the publishers to use an image of the cover artwork above.
