A fantastic book for all ages. I read bedtime stories to my 3 boys and to find a book that a. keeps them interested b.makes them laugh and c.is entertaining for the reader is very welcome in my home. We especially like the recipe for Boy Cake !!! Excellent & well illustrated.
Ingredients: One boy (preferably sleepy) One book entitled "Beware of Boys" One cosy bed One handkerchief A large helping of cuddles Some kisses (as many as you like)
Method: 1) Tuck the boy into the cosy bed & allow to settle 2) Read "Beware of Boys" 3) Wipe away the tears of laughter with the handkerchief 4) Add the cuddles & sprinkle on lots of kisses 5) Turn off the light & leave 'til morning 6) If the giggles start again, return & add another kiss or two!
WARNING: This bedtime treat is so moreish, you may have to follow this recipe again & again, night after night, for some time!
This is a fantastically thought out story. The boy invents ever more ridiculous recipes and poor Mr Wolf runs all around to find the ingredients. Children love to say the words along with the adult and on second reading can spot the items the boy includes in the recipes for himself. Particularly good for reading to children in school.
This book was very funny, especially when the boy kept telling the wolf to get stuff and he was running back and forwards. The boy keeps on saying there is definitely no salt in the recipe but there always is and the wolf has to go back out and get something again. This book helps you to write recipes and instructions. It's a really, really good book for everybody, even adults and especially in school for teachers. It has lots of good ideas for your own writing. By Class 3
As a teacher I used this book to help my year 3 students understand instruction writing. I found it particularly helped to engage the young boys in my class. It was lovely to have a story that went along with the recipes. This book also led to us creating our own interesting recipes which the students were very proud of. I will definitely use this book again.
Used as part of an instructions unit in a Primary School with children aged 7-8. Children absolutely loved the unique story telling of Tony Blundell. They laughed and joined in where they could. Made a fantastic talking point and it's so beautifully illustrated too. It becomes a firm favourite every time I share this with the children.
