This adorable retelling of the age old fable “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” will have you laughing out loud! My littles enjoyed the easy to understand story and my three year old even picked up that the story warns against lying. The author also throws the mini-reader for a loop by introducing one big word…Tenacious. Believe me, my son noticed. The second that word came out of my mouth he was asking me what it meant. Needless to say, I’m impressed! The illustrations have muted colors but I feel that it helps to partner with the story instead of overwhelm it. I enjoyed reading this story to me son and will be keeping an eye out for further books from this author.

 I discovered this book after seeing it at New York Times book review. Lovely and charming illustration with warm and whimsical story.
