Nadine Brun-Cosme; Illustrated by Olivier Tallec
This is the third and final book in what is most likely my all time favorite picture book series. If you are not familiar with The Little Leaf That Wouldn't Fall and the original Big Wolf and Little Wolf, you must check them out.
The two wolves awake one morning, both spying a beautiful orange hanging above their heads. It looks so sweet and so bright, that piece of fruit is all they can think about. Big Wolf climbs up and picks it, discovering it to be even brighter and more round in his paw than he had imagined it would be. Although Big Wolf very desperately wants that sweet orange for himself, he casually tosses it to his small blue friend. The orange globe sails over his head and rolls down the hill. One glimpse of Big Wolf's dejected face is all Little Wolf needs, to know he must retrieve the orange.
