​About Mr Wolf's Pancakes by Jan Fearnley:

Mr Wolf fancies some tasty pancakes but he doesn’t know how to make them! Asking his neighbours is of
no use as they’re a horrible lot who refuse to help. Poor Mr Wolf! He has to work it out all by himself. But what happens when those nasty neighbours want to help Mr Wolf eat his delicious pancakes?
