Children's Book Review: Wolf! Wolf!

Wolf! Wolf!

Wolf! Wolf!
Written and illustrated by:  John Rocco
Published by: Hyperion Books for Children, 2007

Putting a new twist on a classic "The Boy Who Cried Wolf," this retelling finds a curmudgeonly wolf discovering what he's been missing the most.

* My kids are very familiar now with the classic story of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf."  This is a new take on that tale.  Set in Asia, this story is told from the hungry, old wolf's point of view.  Weeds cover his garden and he's very hungry.  When he hears "Wolf! Wolf!" he thinks the little boy is inviting him for lunch.  The ending definitely surprised us!

Family Rating: 2 thumbs up!
