Mr. Wolf is hungry. And, as always, what he wants most for dinner is Preston Pig. But Preston is one step ahead of that wily wolf. He just needs to convince Mr. Wolf that what he really wants is a job, not a meal. That should take his mind off of eating Preston, or will it?

COLIN MCNAUGHTON lives in London.From Booklist:
That bad old wolf is back trying to lure Preston pig into the pot. Preston, of course, wants none of it, suggesting, instead, that the wolf get a job so he can buy his groceries like everybody else. Like any good job counselor, Preston tries his best to match Mr. Wolf's interests to a career, but be it astronaut, schoolteacher, poet, or sailor, it's clear the wolf has only one thing on his mind. The one-joke story goes on a bit too long, and the occasional name calling ("Stupid," "Clever Chops") seems unnecessary. Still, the language is zesty, and the colorful illustrations are lots of fun as Wolfie envisions how the various jobs Preston suggests open up opportunities for piggie pie and piggie stew--even if only in his dreams. For collections where Preston already has a following. Stephanie Zvirin
