This is an excellent children's book by Harry Allard about a wolf who redeems himself. It is true that the wolf seeks to make the Old Man's household happy. But, do guilt offerings by wrongdoers help the victim if they are offered to someone else? Of course not. Yet, by having readers sympathize with the wolf, Allard makes it seem acceptable. The fact is the wolf has done harm, and this story whitewashes his actions in utter disregard for his victims.

The Old Man hired Cuthbert to help him and his old pets around the house

Cuthbert Q. Devine might look like a wolf, but the Old Man liked his big bright smile. The Old Man hired Cuthbert to help him and his old pets around the house. At once Cuthbert's cheery presence made the little house a happier place, and the Old Man and his pets felt years younger. As a child, I remember reading Harry Allard and James Marshall's "It's So Nice to Have a Wolf Around the House," and feeling a deep sympathy for the main character, Cuthbert Q. Divine. All children can learn from this lovely children's tale that teaches the danger of quick assumptions.

Harry Allard (book), James Marshall (book), Jim Thurman (script), Paul Fierlinger (script). View production, box office, & company info. This short, a nominee for the Academy Award, was adapted from a story by Harry Allard, a children's author. Meant primarily for children, like all good animation, it can be viewed with enjoyment by adults as well. The title tells the basic story and this cute and charming short is well worth seeking out. Recommended.

It's so nice-some of that good feeling is bound to rub of. Even the wicked wolf proves redeemable amidst the general trust and harmonious vibes that bless Allard's goofy menage. You'll expect the worst when an old man and his old pets (dog Peppy, cat Ginger, and fish Lightning) get so tired and feeble that they advertise for a ""charming companion"" to take care of them. Answering the ad, and their dreams, is Cuthbert Q. Devine, who looks like a wolf, claims to be a German shepherd, proves a marvelous housekeeper, but is revealed at last as a fugitive wanted for bank robbery.

When James Marshall died in 1992 at the age of fifty, many felt someone . But there are more picture books by Jim Marshall than by any other author. It’s So Nice to Have a Wolf Around the House, story by Harry G. Allard (Doubleday). Jim Marshall was like his books

When James Marshall died in 1992 at the age of fifty, many felt someone special was prematurely subtracted from our lives. More than those by Seuss, Sendak, Lobel, and DeBrunhoff. That says something about my family’s enthusiasm for Jim Marshall. Space Case, story by Edward Marshall (Puffin). Jim Marshall was like his books. He was a charming companion, all his friends would say, and a little edgy like Cuthbert the Wolf.

All children can learn from this lovely children's tale that teaches the danger of quick assumptions. Although Cuthbert is a fugitive from the law, it is obvious that this is not the life he wants. Despite all of the stereotypes about wolves, Cuthbert truly loves the Old Man and his pets with no ulterior motive involved--"all he wanted to do was make the old man and his three pets happy."
  • This is an excellent children's book by Harry Allard about a wolf who redeems himself. The humor isn't only for children; it's good for adults too.

  • I read this book to my son when he was a child, and now, 35 years later, I bought it of my granddaughter.

  • One of the best books ever written.

  • It is true that the wolf seeks to make the Old Man's household happy. But, do guilt offerings by wrongdoers help the victim if they are offered to someone else? Of course not. Yet, by having readers sympathize with the wolf, Allard makes it seem acceptable.

    The fact is the wolf has done harm, and this story whitewashes his actions in utter disregard for his victims. This is the intellectual "blank out" that the Left has used to give criminals a second chance with no regard for the damage they have done, or may repeat*.

    Justice necessarily includes retribution &/or restitution. The wolf must fix his past by repaying his debts properly, otherwise he simply "gets away with it", as all criminals would like. (E.g. "I will kill my wife, and then be good for ever after.")

    Allard is apparently so uninterested in this necessary principle of justice that he is willing to engage children in its subversion.

    People wonder why today's youth seem so lacking in morality! It's because the adults are lacking in morality.

    *This seems to be a popular notion with the courts these day.

  • This book is one of my favorites. The illustrations are terrific. Each of the characters in this book choose to help each other through hard times and end up happy and healthy in the end.

  • Allard and Marshall were an incomparable team. Their books are treasures. Grateful to have this one.
