A boldly illustrated tale of acceptance and change .

"Wolf wasn't happy being Wolf. When he looked in the mirror he looked BAD. And when he looked bad, he felt bad, and when he felt bad, he acted bad."

Wolf wants to change but he's not sure how. He goes on a journey, meeting members of the animal kingdom that experience change; a chameleon, a salamander, a seal, a parrotfish and a flatfish, to name a few. With their help he undergoes a magnificent transition...

This book is ultimately about being able to be yourself and could be used in PSHE sessions about acceptance and appearance. It would also be a fun, cross-curricular link to metamorphosis or life cycles in science. -- Reading Zone

Wolf is confused and disappointed with himself, but he is guided through the jungle, the forest, the sea and the sky by other creatures who show him that he's not alone, that everyone has a bit of a battle to fight. -- School Reading List
