  • Wolf Story

    William McCleery, Warren Chappell

    eBook (NYR Children's Collection, Dec. 5, 2012)
    This irresistible book is about: a father; his five-year-old son, Michael (intelligent, crafty, addicted to stories); Michael’s best friend Stefan (stalwart listener, equally addicted to stories); and, well—what else?—a story.Oh, and a wolf. It is as Michael always demands: a Wolf Story, which begins one night at bedtime and spins wildly on through subsequent bedtimes and Sunday outings to the beach and park in a succession of ever more trickily tantalizing episodes. Waldo the wolf is sneaking up on Rainbow the hen, when Jimmy Tractorwheel, the son of the local farmer, comes along. After that, there’s no knowing what will happen next, as while stalled in traffic jams or nodding off at night, the boys chime in and the story races on and Waldo finds, if not necessarily dinner, his just desserts.First published in 1947 and wonderfully illustrated by Warren Chappell, William McCleery’s Wolf Story is a delicious treat for fathers and sons and daughters and mothers alike.

  • Worm Story

    Morris Gleitzman, Bolinda Publishing Pty Ltd

    Audiobook (Bolinda Publishing Pty Ltd, Oct. 31, 2005)
    Bigger and fatter than all the other microbes in the valley, Wilton feels ostracised and out of place. But even more worryingly, their world has become unhealthy and toxic with mass illness and flash storms. Setting out to find out what is wrong, Wilton meets Algy, a tiny microbe small enough to sit on his shoulder (and take refuge in his guts) who accompanies Wilton on his quest. Taking a wrong turn in an effort to escape some killer fungus, they inadvertently end up outside - and discover (thanks to some helpful bacteria) that the world in which they live is actually one giant organism called Janet.

    William McCleery, Anthony Heald

    Audio Cassette (Listening Library, Feb. 1, 2000)
    Read by Anthony HealdOne cassette / 1 hour 8 mins.Take one young boy, his father and their bedtime ritual--a story. Five-year-old Michael has somehow managed it so that he gets to order up the basic ingredients of each night's story, whereupon Dad spins the tale and adds the embellishments. The only thing is, Michael doles out the same essential ingredients each time: a foppish wolf named Waldo and a hen named Rainbow. As bedtimes go by, the stories become more and more outlandish. Not only that, they spread out into the daytime, too! So what used to be bedtime ritual is now an anytime-he-can-get-his-Dad-to-squeeze-in-an-eipsode arrangement. And as the delightfully absurd story unfolds (and unfolds even more) we can't help smiling while whitnessing the eternal battle between good and evil as orchestrated by a five-year-old boy. It's no wonder that this endearingly funny and down-to-earth classic has endured for years.
