One of my students wrote a five-paragraph essay arguing Jon Klassen should win the Caldecott for his illustrations in The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse because the pictures demonstrate bravery and courage. In the above trailer, the illustrator and the author say they're the mouse and the duck, but what about the Wolf? That's up to the students to decide.
Activity Name: What About the Wolf?
Activity Description: Rewrite the story from the wolf's point of view. Be sure to include an exposition, two rising action points, a climax and a resolution. Have fun!
