"Oversized in every sense of the word, this comic collection of five classic tales-all tied together by a top-hatted, polka-dot cravatted, waistcoat-wearing wolf-abounds in graphic guffaws."-A Best Children's Book of 2008, Washington Post

"Contemporary sensibilities, such as Rhonda's fixation on fashion and the counseling style of Barry's sheep, are priceless additions. The graphic-novel style make this retelling perfect for independent reading as well as for group sharing."-Best Graphic Novel, School Library Journal Online

"This is a giggly read-aloud as well as a snortingly funny read-alone. Hand it to the transitional or reluctant reader, and listen for the laughs."-Booklist, starred review

"Readers drawn by Alley's animated, loosely posed figures will linger over the snappy dialogue."-Kirkus Reviews, starred review


Wolf, a rather fine dresser and intelligent creature, just can't catch a break. All he wants to do is eat some pig, lamb, a gosling or two, a loud shepherd...or that little girl wearing a red hood, but for some reason none of them will cooperate. Five classic tales morph into one ongoing yarn as Wolf bumbles his way through each of them. Told in graphic novel style, this is the gift for kids of all ages for happily-ever-after holidays.
