Big Bad Wolf Is Good

Overview

Poor Wolf—he’s so lonely! Nobody wants to be his friend.
Not the ducklings, not the goslings, not the fuzzy yellow chicks. “Perhaps it’s because I’m big and scary,” he thinks. “Perhaps it’s because I’m bad, bad, bad.” Then he has a bright idea: What if he changes his ways and becomes good? What if he does a noble deed?
But, none of the animals will listen when Wolf tries to tell them about his new plan.

Overview

Poor Wolf—he’s so lonely! Nobody wants to be his friend.
Not the ducklings, not the goslings, not the fuzzy yellow chicks. “Perhaps it’s because I’m big and scary,” he thinks. “Perhaps it’s because I’m bad, bad, bad.” Then he has a bright idea: What if he changes his ways and becomes good? What if he does a noble deed?
But, none of the animals will listen when Wolf tries to tell them about his new plan.
They just flee in terror, slamming the door right in his face. Then something really awful happens: one of the ducklings disappears and everybody thinks Wolf has eaten him all up. Can the Big Bad Wolf prove he didn’t have duck for dinner—and bring the lost little baby safely home? A charming and delightfully fractured fairy tale about friendship, and a wonderful example for children that a person can change, with sweet and funny illustrations that will delight youngsters over and over again.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-K-A lonely wolf wants friends, which is not easy for someone with a big, bad reputation. He tries to be good but hardly gets out a polite greeting when Mrs. Goose and her goslings run into their house, slamming their door behind them. The wolf then decides to be useful and good, but his offer to baby-sit for Mrs. Chicken is rejected. His efforts to save baby duck result in a third slammed door-until Mrs. Duck opens it and invites the teary-eyed wolf in for tea. Full-color cartoon drawings cover most pages and spreads. In most cases, expressive faces reinforce the mood and action of the text, and the sad creature's large oval eyes, soft brown fur, and blue overalls offset his pointy teeth, snout, and ears to make him look more gentle than threatening. There are enough youngsters out there who get frightened by the multitude of big bad wolf stories so that having one around that shows a gentle side may be beneficial.-Kathleen Simonetta, Indian Trails Public Library District, Wheeling, IL Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The more the Big Bad Wolf tries to shed his big bad reputation, the more he gets the same terrified response from the local bird population. Big Bad Wolf is feeling lonely because he has no friends. He figures that if he weren't so scary, he might make a few pals. So he endeavors to be good, but the geese will have nothing to do with his come-out-and-play routine. Snubbed, he decides to be good and useful, but the chickens aren't about to let him into the hen house when he volunteers to baby-sit the chicks. Going whole hog, he decides to be good and useful and to do a noble deed. But the ducks flee from his offer to help find a missing duckling. They even accuse him of having eaten the little wanderer. Big Bad Wolf gnashes his teeth at this rebuff. Maybe he should just get super-bad and teach them all a lesson. When he happens across the AWOL duckling, he softens and brings it home. Mother Duck invites him in for tea, throwing caution to the wind and accepting him at face value. Chapman's hammy pastels, with their hangdog wolf and frantic fowl, ably carry this story of just how hard it is to unsully a bad reputation and that intentions are good only if you keep following through.
