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.
Margie Palatini is the author of many outrageously funny books for children, including Piggie Pie!, illustrated by Howard Fine; Moosetache, Mooseltoe, and the Bad Boys series, all illustrated by Henry Cole; The Cheese, illustrated by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher; No Biting, Louise, illustrated by Matthew Reinhart; and Gorgonzola, illustrated by Tim Bowers. She lives with her family in New Jersey.
“The wordplay flies fast and thick throughout this text and it’s dead–on for a young audience.
