A new bed for Mr. and Mrs. Wolf

Bedtime Stories: tales to take you into the night.  A new bed for Mr. and Mrs. Wolf  by Misbah Khokhar.

If you’re on the hunt for parallel worlds, the land of fairy tales is fertile ground, and this very adult bedtime story should give listeners plenty to think about.

Melbourne writer Misbah Khokhar says ‘This story might actually be true. I am married to Mr. Wolf and he is a cross-dresser. I do make potions, have a black cat and love spiders…’

So come with Misbah as she draws back the bed-covers to reveal her slightly smutty world of wolves in A new bed for Mr. and Mrs. Wolf.


A new bed for Mr.and Mrs. Wolf was written and read by Misbah Khokhar.
