Book Description

26 Mar 1987
"How many times have I told you never to leave the gate open?" Grandfather asks Peter. "What would you do if one day a wolf came out of the forest?" But hardly has he spoken these words, when a lean and hungry wolf comes slinking from the cover of the trees...Selina Hastings has taken this oft-told traditional story, perhaps most famous for being set to a dramatic score by Prokofiev, and breathed new life into it. Accompanied by Reg Cartwright's striking illustrations of the cold, forested landscape, this is a truly captivating version.
