ALA Youth Media Awards: 2018 Batchelder Honor Award Winner A darkly humorous tale with a twist ending Edmond Bigsnout, lone wolf that he is, loves his solitary cabin in the woods. But lately he's been craving urban rabbit for dinner, so he travels into the city to catch one. Unfortunately, the rabbit has a lot of neighbors--who mistake Edmond for a kind and helpful resident Perhaps Edmond can become a good neighbor, despite his bad intentions. Readers of all ages will devour this story about a wolf who decides that if you can't eat them, join them.
