1. Wolf, Chicken, Farmer, Opinionated Son

    Wolf Story by William McCleery. First published in 1947 and resurrected by the New York Review children’s collection, this ridiculously charming book is about a wolf, and a chicken, and a farmer, but really it’s about an exasperated, loving father in midcentury New York telling his very opinionated son a story.

    —Dan Kois in Slate chose Wolf Story as one of his “15 Favorite Books of 2012." We think the page above shows how narrative should work.
