One evening, back from school, a little boy meets a wolf around a street corner and at first takes him for a dog. The wolf is depressed because he doesn’t scare anybody and has lost all credibility. The boy decides to help him and takes him home, where he hides him in the wardrobe, takes care of him and does everything possible to raise his spirit. He offers his new friend some chocolate biscuits he is crazy about and, above all, takes the responsibility to teach him how to scare people. Thus, cookie after cookie, the wolf learns to behave like a wolf. A hilarious role reversal involving two typical characters of children’s literature, which will inevitably charm readers of all age thanks to the humorous dialogues and the funny, simple and elegant drawings.
