Book Description

Once upon a time there was a wolf called Rolf - a good little wolf who liked baking cakes and was always kind to his friends. But real wolves aren't supposed to be good - they're supposed to be BIG and BAD.

Can a good little wolf still be a real wolf?

And will Rolf discover there's something big and bad lurking inside him after all?

Product Description

Review

"A hilarious debut . . . Quirky illustrations and the depiction of an utterly endearing Rolf are just a precursor to the wonderful twist at the end" (Vanessa Lewis The Bookseller)

"Enjoyable for those mischievous young listeners who enjoy a good bad ending" (Pamela Paul The New York Times)

"Teasingly playful" (Lucy Daniel Daily Telegraph)

"Good Little Wolf is a cheeky and amusing read, with plenty to delight its young audience . . . I can't wait to see what Nadia Shireen produces next. If it's as fun as Good Little Wolf, we're in for a real treat" (The Bookbag)

"Starring the fuzziest, friendliest wee wolf ever to grace the pages of a picture book, the story turns stereotypes on its head as Rolf fails to howl at the moon, harass little pigs or eat any grannies" (Big Issue Scotland)

Review

Publishers Weekly, August 15, 2011:
"Shireen's tight pacing and economical prose push the story forward, and her words and pictures play smartly off each other."

NYTimes.com, September 7, 2011:
"Shireen's quirky illustrations are amusing and distinctive, and the story's tweaking of children's fairytale plots works...for those mischievous young listeners who enjoy a good bad ending."

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, November 2011:
."..zesty mixed-media illustrations...[and] some wolfishly amusing unjust deserts here."

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Little Wolf 23 Jun. 2011
By S Riaz HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
From the first page, where Mrs Boggins is telling a story to Rolf (the good little wolf), Little Red Riding Hood and the three little pigs, my children were entranced. Rolf enjoys doing 'good' things - like baking cakes, hearing stories and playing with his friends. However, Mrs Boggins warns him that not all wolves are good. Some, indeed, are Big and Bad. When Rolf runs into a Big Bad Wolf in the woods he attempts to prove he really IS a wolf by trying to blow the little pigs house in and howl at the moon, to no avail. Rolf takes the Big Bad Wolf back to Mrs Boggins house, where they try to make him see the error of his ways. This is a very amusing book, with fantastic illustrations - worth the price for the picture where Rolf first meets the Big Bad Wolf in my opinion, which had my children giggling for ages. However, it is worth pointing out that the ending is not the tradional happy one and the Big Bad Wolf does triumph over poor, unsuspecting Rolf. This did not bother my own children, but if you feel yours will be upset by a twist in the tale, then you might want to bear that in mind. Overall, though, a fine debut from an author I hope we hear a lot more from.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous book! 16 April 2012
Format:Paperback
My 3 year old daughter loves this book, wanting it every night for a couple of weeks! It's great for challenging children about what they think will happen next and really good for encouraging questionning. Illustrations add to the story - in fact, my daughter immediately spotted 2 pages without and text and wondered why. She then realised that the pictures told the story! Fabulous ending too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful book 9 Jun. 2011
Format:Paperback
So there you are of a bed time, reading this book for the first time to the little 'uns, enjoying the distinctive, stylish illustrations and the references to nursery rhymes and other children's stories which work seamlessly with the narrative, when all of a sudden - BAM - the ending is not at all quite what you had been expecting. And at first you think, 'gosh'! But then you smile to yourself, and then perhaps you might laugh a little, or even quite alot. Very amusing indeed. Every child should read this story - and every parent should have this on the bookshelf for when Mummy/Daddy needs cheering up after a long, hard day!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 'twist in the tail' wolf story 7 July 2015
By K. J. Noyes TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Grandma tells a tale about a good little wolf (eats his veg, nice to his friends)... and the day he meets a big bad wolf who says he's not a 'real' wolf. Good little wolf tries to do as he's told, but will he turn to the 'dark side'?

My son loved the way the story turned, and we both loved the final twist as well, as the reader at the end of the book is not the one who started the tale...

Very funny, with some endearing drawings (and not too scary wolves either). Easy to read and a great bedtime choice for 3-6 year olds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wickedly wonderful! 14 Jun. 2011
Format:Paperback
As a first time new parent, I've discovered that on the whole children's books are boring for the parents... Lacking the plots and twists of a good page turner... But what can you expect? Which is why this book is worth reviewing. I actually enjoyed reading this. I don't want to spoil the plot, or give away the twist at the end, but it's brilliant! I'm fairly sure this will be the bedtime book of choice for quite some time. Oh, and my daughter loves it too, although shes more interested in the very sweet pictures. More Like this please!

5.0 out of 5 stars Took me back to my own childhood 5 Jun. 2011
Format:Paperback
What a fab little read, with lovely big bold illustrations and quite delightfully written. This really took me back to the fairytales of my own childhood and reminded me of much loved books such as Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks. Gave me a warm fuzzy feeling all over and I am sure this will get little imaginations running riot. This would make the perfect present for a small person!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical 11 July 2012
By Tamsin
Format:Paperback
Have been asked to read this again and again. Luckily, I enjoy it too! Does have a slightly dark ending, but all the best stories do. Can't stand versions of Little Red Riding Hood when they make the ending less scary!
