    1. Definitely a family favourite!It has touchy-feely bits, and a brilliant pop-up on the last page.So Little Piggy is convinced that Wolf is somewhere on the farm (don't ask me why, the kid had a hunch, just roll with it) So he wanders around sticking his hand into hiding places to see if Wolf is there (surely that's just asking for Wolf to bite his hand off?) Each one is a hidden touch-panel (eg, this one is soft, this one is smooth, this one is rough, etc) and it turns out each time to be a diffe [...]

    2. My just-turned-3 year old cousin went nuts over this book. It's actually pretty scary for that age (they aren't kidding about the "not a bedtime story" warning on the cover), but, at least for my cousin, it was just scary enough to be titillating. He asked to read it five times in a row, and after the first time he would jump off the couch and hide (giggling) when he knew the wolf was about to jump out. I really liked the touch-and-feel elements of the book--the fact that they are hidden and you [...]

    3. Possibly the best pop up book ever created with a unique ‘touch and feel’ experience which invites the reader to put his fingers inside cardboard pockets to feel if the wolf is hiding inside. Each pocket includes a different texture to feed the reader’s imagination, since the reader has no idea what he will touch.The book culminates with an impactful pop up of the wolf with his ferocious jaws. Children and adults of all ages will appreciate this book and it is particularly useful for child [...]

    4. This book is awesome! A piglet is searching for a wolf hiding on the farm. Pages feature touch and feel pockets that challenge readers to stick their hands in sight unseen. Printed on each pocket is a refrain that audiences will most likely chime in on if you choose to read this story aloud (which I definitely think you should!) Piglet is sure wolf is hiding in every pocket, but it's not until the end that he turns up in a pop up surprise of an ending!GREAT read aloud! This is seriously the cool [...]

    5. Very cute book for kids. Are you brave enough to feel inside the pockets to see if it is wolf in there? "Slide your hand in if you dare wolf may be lurking so BEWARE!" Wonderful pop-up at the end. Disappointingly, apart from the invitation written on each pocket, the language is not particularly engaging.

    6. Picture Book #14This is an awesome book to read one-on-one or in a small group, so each person can use the touch-and-feel aspect of the book. The story and the interaction keeps the children interested and involved and the book can actually make you feel a little scared!

    7. Fun touch-and-feel (aren't those kind of the same thing?) book with lots of flaps to stick hands into to feel all sorts of different textures. Also a big pop-up at the end. This will probably be a big hit with lots of kids.

    8. This book was sooo adorable!!!! It is perfect for reading with one child or maybe just a couple kids. They have to slide their hand into each page to see if Wolf is underneath, and instead find other surprises. Will they ever come upon Wolf?

    9. Adorable!! I love the flaps that have kids feeling different textures. Both A (2) and C (5) were enthralled!

    10. Such a cool book! The kids love the touch-n-feel pockets, and I must say that I did too. The story is cute & the pop up at the end is really neat. We've already read it 3 times!

    11. I love this book! It's funny to actually be anticipating what you're feeling under the flaps. Definitely not a bedtime story for the kiddos! It's superb!!!
