What would happen if a little boy met the Big, Bad Wolf and brought him home? "Who's afraid of the big, bad wolf?" Not the young hero of this thoroughly unique story. And, it seems, no one else is, either: instead of being the magnificent villain of "The Three Little Pigs" or "Little Red Riding Hood," "this" wolf's a wimp. So the boy decides to take the pitiful creature home and teach him to be scary once again. Can he do it? Children will absolutely love seeing the tables turned, with the small boy becoming the wise teacher and the wolf the sheepish student.The short chapters and breezy, funny text are just right for new readers, and Delphine Perret's line art is simply irresistible.
