Synopsis

Rising star Claudia Rueda makes a sparkling debut as author and artist in this winsome story based on a traditional French and Spanish play song for the very young.

"Let's play in the forest while the wolf is not around," sing the animals in the forest. "Wolf, are you there?"

"I am putting on my underpants," Wolf answers.

As Duck, Bunny, Moose, Beaver, and others play between the trees, Wolf continues getting dressed: undershirt, pants, T-shirt, socks, and shoes. By the time he has combed his hair and put on his backpack, Wolf is VERY hungry, and the animals are suddenly VERY afraid.

Luckily for the animals, Wolf is hungry for PANCAKES -- his favorite!
