I think that's a very trite description of the book. I think this is actually a deconstruction of Mrs Boggins's psyche. Her super-ego is labelled Mrs Boggins, her ego as Rolf and the Big Bad Wolf is her id. We now see the book for what it really is - a woman struggling to control her monstrous desires. Sure, her ego can temporarily tie it up, or sate it with cake, but ultimately her needs and desires are too much for her to control. Not even with a nice cup of tea.
Great book, not suitable for children, although for the record my 3 and 6 year olds were entirely unconcerned with the ending.
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.
