Max, the Stubborn Little Wolf

Max doesn't want to follow in his father's footsteps and be a hunter.  He wants to be a florist.

"Quick as a wink, when anyone asked Max what he'd like to be one day, the little wolf always said: "I want to be a florist."

Papa Wolf is determined that his son won't be a florist.

"Wolf fathers and sons are hunters, have always been hunters, and always will be hunters.  You, my son, will follow the family tradition.  And that is that!"

Papa Wolf lies awake at night conjuring up ways to dissuade  his son from becoming a florist or he'll eat his hat! or his pillow! or the china!

Max, the Stubborn Little Wolf is an hilariously playful book with an important message:  March to the beat of our own drummer.
