CLEVER POLLY AND THE STUPID WOLF is one of the best, most reassuring children's books ever. It's about a child who persistently outwits a stupid, hungry wolf, and this sequel (which I didn'#t know existed) is re-issued by the wonderful Jane Nissen Books. Wolf is furious at being described as stupid, but once again all his plans fail. Dying himself reddish brown (because foxes in fairy tales are always clever), disguising himself as Father Christmas and even leaping into Polly's garden to eat her fail. So, thankfully, does his kidnap of Polly's little sister Lucy who is as imperious and impossible as most small children. Storr, a psychiatrist,probably did more good to children's sanity and self-confidence through these stories than a life-time of analysis.

Why oh why didn't I know of this book as I child in the 70s???? My daughter was given this to read in Year one at Infant school (2014). She shares the same name as the heroine so it was especially special to her. A love of the book ensued and we read this over and over for about two months. (We have the first one too). I bet it fell out of popularity in schools in the 70s, 80s, 90s as its rather a scary theme, a wolf who tries over and over to catch a little girl called Polly. Polly always out-betters him. I wish I had her cleverness and wit! Cracking good stuff. A family heirloom methinks.

The two Polly books are wonderful - whimsical, intelligent, not in any way patronising. Best suited to be read to a child ages 5 upwards - adults also are amused.

Loved the Poly books when I was a kid. Now the time has come to read them to my own kids, but there are no Kindle versions...

We love Clever Polly and the Stupid Wolf, such a funny, funny book for adults and children. My 7 and 8 year olds love it and i would recommend both books, 'Polly and the Wolf Again' to anyone with girls this age.

The Clever Polly books are wonderful. They are also very funny so are lovely to read aloud as both reader and child enjoy them. It is good to have a little girl heroine who is kind and clever.
