Mr. Wolf takes a comment from owl and turns it into a recommendation that he should become an artist. After seeing his painting, Mrs. Wolf has to set him straight about his lack of artistic ability. Her comment about his poetic soul causes him to decide to be a poet. That doesn't work too well either. As friends and acquaintances comment on each of his endeavors, he always finds an inspiration for his next attempt - sculpture, stand-up comedy, acting, etc. When he finally does show an aptitude, everyone is surprised and pleased.
This book would be great for a discussion about finding your strength(s) or about perseverance.
