Since the dawn of time, both young and old have asked, “Why?” The Wolf, the Duck & the Mouse explains why the wolf howls at the moon. Its theme is clear: Make the best of things–a positive message for everyone to practice.

Jonas in the belly of the whale is a scary story. Pinochio in the belly of Monstro is another. However, the duck and the mouse in the belly of the wolf definitely is NOT. The child within will laugh as a small duck and a smaller mouse charge to defend their wolf, their home against the hunter and learn why the wolf howls so.
