Brave little Piglet thinks a wolf is hiding somewhere on the farm, and he's looking for him. When kids open this book, will they be as brave as piglet? Putting an original twist on the touch-and-feel format, this book takes young readers along with Piglet on his search.
Kids are invited to slide a hand into cardboard pockets on the book's illustrations. Is the wolf hiding in one of them?
In one pocket kids' hands reach into the farmer's haystack where they touch soft fur. Is it a wolf, or is it only the farmer's cat? Another pocket produces jagged points that might be the wolf's claws. . . then another has a sticky surface that might be his tongue. The fourth hides a rough surface that might be the wolf's feet. . . and the last, a silky surface that might be his nose! But so far, nobody has seen a wolf. Then, just as Piglet and his friends are about to give up, kids open to the final two-page spread and get a scary pop-up surprise. A fierce cardboard wolf's head leaps out from the book's pages!

After graduating from Cornwall School of Art & Design in 1982, illustrator Steve Cox went to work for a design firm, creating a variety of licensed characters, in particular those for Roland Rat, a British television series. In 1987 he established Primary Design, which quickly became the approved studio for the illustration and design of many well-known TV characters. After about five years, however, despite his success, he decided that the drawing board was more satisfying than running a company, and he returned to full-time illustration. Steve lives in Bath, England.
