Dot is suspicious of the wolf pup her parents adopt, just waiting for him to try and eat the family. None of the other adults seem concerned though. When Dot has goes to the carrot patch for more carrots, Wolfie wants to go as well, and her parents let him (after dressing him in a bunny onsie)! Dot knows he is going to try something, but it turns out Wolfie isn't the problem-its a bear who tries to eat Wolfie! Dot comes to the rescue, and sees that family, especially bothers come in all shapes.

Mom and dad bunny fall in love with the baby wolf that gets left on their doorstep. Dot knows this is not going to turn out well, but nobody will listen to her. Well, Wolfie grows up and the adventure begins!

Spunky little Dot the Bunny does not understand why her parents are so ga-ga over their newly adopted wolf baby. Turns out, Dot's worries are unfounded and she's actually an excellent big sister. Clever illustrations makes this a fun read for grownups, too; e.g. when Dot and Wolfie head to the carrot patch, which, since they're urban bunnies, turns out to be The Carrot Patch, a local co-op.

This is a hilarious picture book with a sweet ending. The concept is clever -- a wolf adopted by a bunny family, and the bunny kid who can't understand why her parents don't realize the wolf will eat them -- and it's extremely well-executed. Plus, the artwork is great. Adults and kids alike should enjoy this one -- definitely one of the best picture books of the year.

What a fun book! A little rabbit gets a new brother - a wolf cub. Her cries of "He'll eat us up!" go unheeded by her parents, until a final confrontation changes everything. A great read-aloud story.

Hipster rabbits. Love it! Also, my children are alternately enthralled by and afraid of wolves. So this is both appealing and reassuring. (they're 2 1/2)

This was a super cute book about a little girl who is also a reluctant big sister. She keeps trying to tell her parents that her little brother is not what he seems to be, and she later finds out just how right she is

Dot the bunny gets a new little brother, and she's not so sure about him. For starters, he's a wolf...

Adorable story ideal for ages 5-8. The youngest bunny in her family is convinced her newly adopted wolf brother will one day devour the family. Her fears and warnings are not taken seriously but she stand her ground as her family is sure that Wolfie is not only harmless, but a good eater! A contemporary tale with classic illustrations about family, trust, and courage.
