PreSchool-Grade 2-The first book follows a boy who hates numbers until a special birthday present allows him to discover how important they are. The colorful, childlike cartoons support the action. The concept is relayed well enough though the story itself is not particularly inspired. The second story is disappointing. A ravenous Mrs. Wolf finds a duck egg and resolves to fatten the emerging duckling for dinner. She spends days at the hot stove making pancakes, jam tarts, and chocolate muffins. Later, they picnic with sandwiches and coffee. Then, instead of wanting to eat the little creature, she realizes she has become very attached to it. This is one dumb wolf and one confusing story. Why is she starving if she has so much food around her? Endpapers in both volumes provide ideas on sharing the books with youngsters.
