Wolfboy is hungry! He’s drooly and growly and fussy! As he stomps through the forest looking for rabbits, he grows hungrier and growlier by the minute. What will happen if Wolfboy can’t find those rabbits? And what will happen if he does? With bold illustrations and energetic storytelling, Wolfboy perfectly captures the big feelings that come with being very hungry! Engaging, original and perfect for reading aloud.
Andy Harkness is an art director at Disney. This short bio is taken from his website: “I attended the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio from 1991-1993 and was hired at Disney Feature Animation in 1994. I began my career as a clean-up animator on “Pocahontas”, and after three years in clean-up, moved into the layout department. In 2004, I was hired as an Art Director at Sony Pictures Animation on “Open Season. In 2006 I moved back to Disney and worked as an Art Director and Visual Development artist on many films. My first children’s book, BUG ZOO was published in 2016. I currently work as a visual development artist at Sony Pictures Animation.”
