Kid’s Book Review: Mr Wolf’s Class

About the Book and Author

This book is the first in the Mr Wolf series of graphic novels set in a school. Mr Wolf is a brand new teacher at Hazelwood Elementary and this book is about the adventures of Mr Wolf and his new class on the first day of school.


This is a funny story and the contemporary, relatable setting, vivid characters and excellent illustrations mean it is a good series to recommend to reluctant young readers.

Book Review

the illustrations were very detailed and they showed the emotions of the characters very well

There were lots of things I liked about the book. Firstly I liked the author’s sense of humour. For example, when Penny was sleeping in the class and she didn’t realise the school day was over. Secondly I liked the illustrations because they were very detailed and they showed the emotions of the characters very well.


I also liked the fact that there were many interesting characters throughout the story such as Margot, Sampson, Aziza, Abdi and Penny. Margot has moved near the school and quickly becomes friends with Sampson as they both like shells.


My favourite part was when Abdi’s lunch was stolen by rats. The only bit that I disliked is when Aziza wrote a note that said “Boys are stupid”.
I would definitely recommend this book to young readers who like stories with comical situations.


I would give this book a rating of 8 out of 10 because it made me laugh most of the time and it was really entertaining.
