Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Five classic tales all starring one put-upon wolf!

Wolf, a rather fine dresser and intelligent creature, just can't catch a break. All he wants to do is eat some pig, lamb, a gosling or two, a loud sheperd — or that little girl wearing a red hood...but for some reason, none of them will cooperate.

Five classic tales morph into one ongoing yarn as Wolf bumbles his way through each of them. Told in graphic novel style in an oversized picture book package, this is the gift for kids of all ages for happily-ever-after holidays.

Review:

Oversized in every sense of the word, this comic collection of five classic tales — all tied together by a top-hatted, polka-dot cravatted, waistcoat-wearing wolf — abounds in graphic guffaws. From snarky smile to bushy tail, this is a wolf worthy of the name who is nevertheless destined for repeated defeats. Unbowed by disaster, he merely lights out for the greener pastures of another story. Without... Washington Post Book Review (read the entire Washington Post review)

Review:

"The stories' narrative paths tend to follow the originals, but now they're layered with humor....This is a giggly read-aloud as well as a snortingly funny read-alone." Booklist (starred review)

Review:

"A hungry wolf just can't catch a break in these five loosely connected folktales....Readers drawn by the unusually large trim size and Alley's animated, loosely posed figures will linger over the snappy dialogue and almost feel sorry for the feckless predator..." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Review:

"Illustrated with softly colored pen-and-ink drawings, these five stories meld seamlessly together....The oversize format and the graphic-novel style make this retelling perfect for independent reading as well as for group sharing." School Library Journal

Review:

"Comic-style panels laced with narrative boxes and word balloons lay out all the action for readers in big, clearly defined spreads, and text and pictures successfully mesh together into a highly enjoyable whole." Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
