The Underwear Wolf (Gold Early Reader)
We love the Maverick Early Readers scheme and have read a large number of them: not only do they help children to learn to read, they also encourage reading for pleasure.
Stitch is different from other children. Firstly, he loves to knit, and secondly, when the full moon appears, he turns into a werewolf! His wolfy skills are not really up to scratch, though, and he’s also a bit lonely, so he seeks out a pack to join. Hugo thought this story was hilarious! He loved the fact that Stitch finally made friends with other werewolves and he thought that it was very kind of Stitch to knit them ‘super-stretchy pants’ to keep them warm. The story gave us lots of opportunities to talk about difference, inclusion and empathy and Hugo loved the book so much that he dressed up as Stitch for World Book Day.
