Title: The Cave
Author: Rob Hodgson
Illustrator: Rob Hodgson
There is a little creature that lives in a cave and never leaves. The little creature never leaves because there’s a wolf outside and the wolf is very hungry. The wolf tries everything to get the little creature to come out. Can a doughnut covered in sprinkles finally coax the little creature out? And will the wolf end up regretting his decision?
Each spread features the cave with the wolf outside, braving all weathers and coming up with ploys to entice the little creature out.
My favourite spread was definitely when the little creature finally comes out but I couldn’t possibly share a picture because that would ruin the surprise!
This fun story made me laugh out loud with its killer twist ending! The clever use of the cave as the focal point of each spread really holds this story together. A great read to enjoy with toddlers+.

I am very grateful to the publisher for letting me read this book via Net Galley. This voluntary review contains my honest opinion.
I wasn’t aware of this book until this review. Thank you for not spoiling the ending, but doing just enough to make me want to go out an buy it to discover that final twist
