Deb Abela is more well-known for her fabulous junior fiction titles. As far as I know, Wolfie is her first foray into picture book territory, but it's a beauty!

Much like the wolf in Aaron Blabey's The Bad Guys, Wolfie just wants to be seen as good, kind and brave. He's tired of the bad boy image and the bad press. He wants to feature in a story where he gets to be the hero.

Those Poor wolves.

Have you ever read a story where the wolf is a hero? The wolf is the good character? Or the wolf is someone that we should all look up to?

A great little picture book which is presented simply, and with great humour but has a profound message. Are we judged by the actions of our parents and previous generations? This story of the little wolf, son of the Big bad Wolf who wants to be good, but is not believed because of well, because of his father will hopefully bring about many conversations
about judging others and taking people in their own merits. This is indeed a wonderful story and Abela is a very good author.

Deb knew she wanted to be a writer when she was 7 years old. Her first story was about a man made out of cheese. It wasn’t very good. She’s had much more practice writing since then and strangely enough her first writing job was for a kids’ show on channel Ten called “Cheez TV”. After 7 years of writing scripts about everything from llamas to bungy jumping and how to go to the toilet in outer spac ...more
