The Wolf, the Duck, and the Mouse to be published October 2017.
Bestselling picture book creators Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen will debut a standalone picture book in spring of 2017, the Walker Books Group announced today. The Wolf, the Duck, and the Mouse will be released in Australia in October 2017. With multiple New York Times bestsellers and multiple awards between them, Barnett and Klassen have become one of the most dynamic duos in children’s literature.
In this unparalleled new comedy, a woeful mouse is swallowed by a wolf and quickly learns he is not alone. A duck has already set up a lovely little home, rife with delicious food and elegant table settings, courtesy of the wolf’s unchecked gluttony. This charming story offers the signature wit and whimsy that readers of all ages have come to expect from Barnett and Klassen.
Mac Barnett is the author of many award-winning books for children, including Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, illustrated by Jon Klassen. Jon Klassen is the creator of the much-acclaimed hat trilogy, which includes the #1 New York Times bestseller I Want My Hat Back, This Is Not My Hat, and the best-selling conclusion We Found a Hat.
