Great twist on a classic
I told my son that he was like the boy cried wolf. He had no clue about what I was talking about. This book is a funnier version of the classic tale. The plot is the same, but humorous embellishments have been added to the story. 'I am the most bored boy in the world,' the shepherd says and the picture of the little shepherd is of him picking his nose. For fun he runs into the town yelling, 'Wolf! Wolf! Wolf.' The towns people answer his cries twice but ignore him the third time, when three hungry wolves actually do appear. The ending is cute the sheep end up in a tree rather than a wolf's stomach.

B. G. Hennesy has retold the old familiar tale of the boy who cried wolf with wit and charm. Boris Kulikov's amusing and colorful pictures had our students rolling with laughter and the combination provided wonderful discussion points for the tale and the trait of honesty.
