About this title

Synopsis:

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Little Wolf gets a job at Weekly Wolf magazine dispensing advice in response to readers' letters, such as a skunk who wonders if she should change her perfume.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5-In this addition to the series, Little Wolf is the resident Dear Abby columnist at Wolf Weekly. Using the pen name Mister Helpful, he gives advice to various critters of the forest. Writing with his typical blend of phonetic spelling, whimsical poetry, and sardonic humor, Little Wolf suggests to beginning wolfcubsitters: "If baby is a problem and you don't know what to do, give him something fun to play with, like a nice big pot of glue." Ross's black-and-white sketches are an inseparable component of the letters and of the book itself. Their placement in and around the text has a gelling effect that keeps together an often-puzzling blend of prose, verse, adult vocabulary, and animal sounds. The mishmash of misspellings, childlike art, and varied fonts evokes comparisons to Dav Pilkey's "Captain Underpants" series (Scholastic). However, where Pilkey's outlandish humor is the laugh-out-loud variety, Whybrow's may evoke mild titters. Older students are not likely to be moved by the characters and British sensibilities, while the challenging vocabulary may be too difficult for young readers.
