"Nothing ever happens here," the shepherd thinks. But the bored boy knows what would be exciting: He cries that a wolf is after his sheep, and the town's people come running. How often can that trick work, though?
B.G. Hennessy's retelling of this timeless fable is infused with fanciful whimsy through Boris Kulikov's hilarious and ingenious illustrations. This tale is sure to leave readers grinning sheepishly.

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.
We used this book for a school wide read for the character trait of honesty. 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. Well worth
Used it as a teaching aid for my Grandson.
