Description

They were bad. Oh yes, those boys were real bad.

On the run again, wolves Willy and Wally have the perfect plan.

Cleverly disguised in womanly wool-wear, they slip into the sheep flock -- a hide-out "on the lam." A foolproof plan indeed . . . especially for securing a lamb chop or two. But when those bad boys -- rather, Willimina and Wallanda -- meet their match in the form of three savvy sheep, the truth is only a close shave away.

Margie Palatini and Henry Cole, the team behind the hilarious moosetache and mooseltoe, have created a madcap fairy-tale read-aloud sure to entertain young readers.
