5.0 out of 5 stars Good Little Wolf, 23 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Good Little Wolf (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.

It is such a shame that throughout history, the misunderstanding about the wolf is constantly perpetuated by stories such as these. Seeing the title, I was hoping for something better - a positive representation, perhaps. But alas, from the very first page it shows ignorance: howling at the moon? For god's sake. The wolf is in some parts of the world becoming an endangered species. Hatred is at an all-time high. Conservationists, biologists and educated people are working at changing things, offering solutions to any problems. So what do we do? Take our children and indoctrinate them with this sort of nonsens.
