There is no Big Bad Wolf in this story is a fun new children’s picture book from Lou Carter and Deborah Allwright.
This fractured fairytale sees the Big Bad Wolf tired of being the baddie in fairytale land. He needs to be in two different stories at the same time, and this means he’s always rushing and late. Everyone is cross with him so he tells them he’s had enough and leaves them to do their own Big, Bad Wolfing – which doesn’t go very well.
As it turns out Big Bad Wolfing is harder than it looks, and the Three Little Pigs and Grandma realise they really do need a Big Bad Wolf in the story. But will he want to end his break and help them out?
There is no Big Bad Wolf in this story features your favourite fairytale characters as you’ve never seen them before. It’s a clever twist on the traditional fairytales and your children will delight in seeing the Three Little Pigs, Grandma and Red Riding Hood huffing and puffing as best they can, and then watching them work together to make sure that the Big Bad Wolf is never late again. There are also gentle messages about not taking others for granted and about teamwork, making this a great addition to your story time.
There is no big bad wolf in this story is available for a recommended retail price of R185.
