They may have been swallowed, but they have no intention of being eaten...

When a woeful mouse is swallowed up by a wolf, he quickly learns he is not alone: a duck has already set up digs, and, boy, has that duck got it figured out! Turns out it's pretty nice inside the belly of the beast—there's delicious food, elegant table settings and, best of all, dancing. And there's something more: no more fear of being eaten by a wolf! Life's not so bad, considering the alternatives. That is, until a hunter shows up...

With a nod to traditional fables and a wink to the reader, the award-winning Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen, of Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, Extra Yarn and Triangle, offer a tale of cooperation and creative cuisine that is sure to go down easy.

"Jon Klassen and Mac Barnett are a match made in picturebook heaven ... it brilliantly champions the idea of the underdog ... A treat for adults and children alike." —The Irish Times

"A deliciously dark and completely absurd story ... Told with devilish wit and illustrated with fearsome prowess this is contemporary fable telling at its very best." —WRD magazine

"The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen is a subversive delight. ... The earthy darkness of the wolf's interior contrasts with soft shades of moonlit forest in this unexpected, hilarious collaboration." —The Guardian
