A large, toothy, mean-looking wolf zealously stalks Preston the pig. But each time the wolf gets close, Preston suddenly changes course and unknowingly eludes his pursuer. Colin McNaughton's humorous illustrations enhance the element of surprise each time Preston "outsmarts" the wolf. Young readers will laugh with delight as this suspenseful tale unfolds. "Zany fun that's perfect for young audiences."--"School Library Journal"
