Guest Blog Post: The World of Mr. Wolf

What’s your favorite book from your childhood? I loved Winnie the Pooh.

The best children’s books are ones I appreciate all the more with the passage of time. Here Mr. Wolf, an author of the kinds of children’s books that adults can enjoy too, shares a few of his illustrations…

Here's Captain Bee Beard - a pirate who has a beard made out of bees! (From Mr. Wolf's children's book: Terry The Time Travelling Tortoise.)

Have you ever seen a Posh-Me-Posh-Ewe animal before? (From Mr. Wolf's forthcoming children's book: Mr. Zumpo's Amazing Zoo of Unusual Animals.)

About the illustrator of these wonderful pictures: Mr. Wolf is an English freelance cartoon illustrator and an author of funny children’s books which adults seem to love too. I met him at Goodreads (a sort of Facebook for book lovers).

    I have always wished I could draw but when I try it never looks right.
    Those are awesome.

    There are so many great children’s books nowadays. When I was young we had these moral and “educational” stuff, which I was terrified of. But I liked a book called “Rikki Tikki Tavi”, with different animal stories.

    The Wolf cartoons are pretty funny, but I bet some of the humor is above the kids’ heads.

    I know I could read around age 5 but I don’t recall how I learned. I read what were called children’s classics: Heidi, The Swiss Family Robinson, Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, Black Beauty, The Railway Children. I have no recollection of enjoying books intended for younger children and don’t remember my mother reading to me.

    I read books like Dr. Seuss who had the right story for the right moment. Very much so.
