The Big Bad Wolf and Me by Delphine Perret


The Big Bad Wolf and Me by Delphine Perret

This is a wholly original, completely irresistible picture book about an unlikely friendship between a young boy and the Big Bad Wolf. It is suitable for children aged 4 years and up. In this wholly original, completely irresistible picture book, a little boy comes across the Big Bad Wolf on his way home from school. Far from being the fearful villain in storybooks, this wolf is all washed up and has forgotten how to be scary. The boy takes it as his personal challenge to help the wolf regain his confidence so he can growl and roar with his old flair. He renames the wolf Zorro, lets him sleep in his closet, puts him on a strict diet of chocolate chip cookies and canned salmon-flavoured cat food and reminds him how to roar and make really scary faces in the mirror. The result is not only a completely rehabilitated Big Bad Wolf, but also a wonderful friendship that no reader will forget. The story is told in twelve very brief chapters, each one a series of pen-and-ink comic-book-style vignettes; simple, whimsical and incredibly expressive.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
