Wait! said the muskrat. I want to tell you a story. Tom Willans was born in St. Albans, England, in 1975. After attending Verulam School, Tom achieved a . degree in graphics and illustration at Bath University.

Wait! said the muskrat. His first job in publishing was as a designer and paper engineer with David Bennett Books, where he helped create many ingenious pop-up books. He continues to work in publishing and is currently on stage in Two Planks and a Passion, a play by the acclaimed movie director Anthony Minghella. This is Tom's first book for children.

Tom Willians' first picture book is indelibly stamped with the hallmarks of a read-aloud classic. The read-aloud crowd will love chanting the two-part refrain, an energetic "Wait, I want to tell you a story" and a curmudgeonly reply, "Well, make it quick. Storytelling tip: read the first sentence in a high, squeaky voice, the response in a deep, fierce bass. The story chain breaks when the impatient spider gobbles the fly.

The whole book goes from each character from the previous "story," to the next. A tiger is about to eat a muskrat when the muskrat exclaims, "Wait! I want to tell you a story

The whole book goes from each character from the previous "story," to the next. At the end the tiger gets eaten by a crocodile and the muskrat gets away. A tiger is about to eat a muskrat when the muskrat exclaims, "Wait! I want to tell you a story. His story consists of other animals just about to eaten only to save themselves by shouting, "Wait! I want to tell you a story. The tiger tires of this, but then the muskrat changes the story and surprises the tiger.

Wait!" said the muskrat. Tom Willans creates a delightful read-aloud to complement his quirkily rendered animals. Could be a good book to incorporate into a bully lesson. It teaches kids to use their minds to out think another

Wait!" said the muskrat. Okay," said the tiger, "but make it quick!"" Clever muskrat! He knows just how to outwit a very hungry tiger: tell him a story. The surprise ending will have children laughing and asking for the story to be read again and again. It teaches kids to use their minds to out think another. The illustrations are simple and juvenile but lots of expression and interest for students.

It's all part of what I'm about to tell you. Around a millennia ago, in certain parts of the world, there were monsters. And in one region there was no monster more terrifying than dragons. On their own, no faction was any match for dragons. So an unholy alliance was formed. A witch, a werewolf and a vampire The Triad combined their blood, using black magic to create a golem capable of consuming the dragons. They spelled the creature to have an insatiable hunger.

Wait! I Want to Tell you a Story by Tom Williams is my kind of book. Maybe it's the little green frog sitting on the shark's nose on the end pages when I first opened the cover? Maybe it's the muskrat sitting quietly in a tree in the closing end pages of the book? The food chain is humorously illustrated in the events of the book. The spider ate the fly, the lizard ate the spider, the snake ate the lizard, the frog ate the snake, and the shark ate the frog. But what happened to the tiger, the crocodile, and the muskrat? What crocodile, you ask? I can see you haven't read Wait! I Want to Tell you a Story, but you will have to buy the book and find out what happens at the end for yourself!

This book is fantastic! At first I was disappointed by the simple rough drawings but they were just fine for my 2 year old. And the storyline? Well, you don't get better than this! It was good from start to finish. You'll want to buy it in hardcover.

Great book! I enjoyed reading it to all of my grandsons (aged 2, 4, 5). They loved the story also. The 4 year old kept

wanting to hear it again and again.

What preschooler hasn't tried talking as a tactic to delay bedtime, bath time, or some other unwelcome event? In Tom Willans's version of this old, old story, the unwelcome event is Tiger's dinner, and unless little Muskrat does some fast talking, he's doomed to be the main course.
Clever Muskrat begins a layered story in which a shark wants to eat a frog, a snake wants to eat a lizard, a spider wants to eat a fly. Each victim cries, "Wait!" and begins a story of its own.
The read-aloud crowd will love chanting the two-part refrain, an energetic "Wait, I want to tell you a story" and a curmudgeonly reply, "Well, make it quick." Storytelling tip: read the first sentence in a high, squeaky voice, the response in a deep, fierce bass.
The story chain breaks when the impatient spider gobbles the fly. Snake quickly swallows lizard; shark snatches frog; and the outlook isn't good for poor Muskrat. However, Muskrat has one more trick on tap for Tiger.
Loose pen-and-ink drawings with watercolor wash convey just the right amount of silliness to keep the critter-eat-critter theme non-threatening and fun. Be ready for a completely unpredictable yet satisfying surprise at the end.

I had already read this book in the store so when my husband read it to my child I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see both their reactions to the ending, especially since both of them being of the male species, thought they knew everything. This little mouse quickly tells the lion a story to keep him from nibbling on him, and sorry can't type any more. You'll just have to purchase it, and no going to the book store to peek at the ending.
Fenius
This story is so wonderful, it's a shame that it is dragged down by such sub-par drawings. If I wasn't informed of the fact, I would have NO IDEA that it is supposed to be a muskrat, and what panet did the spider come from? Don't even get me started on what is supposed to be a "tiger"...
This could be a truly awesome book to read to children at a storytime, IF it had better pictures.
