This book is so clever and funny. The wolf wants a lamb for his supper, but he has to get around Rambo the Ram, so he tries the old "wolf in sheep's clothing" trick. He bullies Red Riding-hood's granny into making him a sweater, but granny has some tricks of her own (and the best part of that scene is the reaction of the other sheep who are watching it all happen).

This is a cute book to teach children to that someone else's property is not their's to touch. It has a similar story as The Three Little Pigs but it involves sheep and them plotting against the wolf. ( )

This book is about a young wolf that wanted to disquise himself into a sheep so he could get all of their things and get their meat, he was very hungry. Lou the wolf found many items to help disquise his brown body, and once he was coverd in white he arrived in front of the sheep with a smile. He thought to himself, YES i fooled those sheep, but little did he know they had a plan all along to catch him. Lou the wolf was eventually caught by the sheep and Lou never returned to the sheep pen again.
This book is a great way to teach children to stay out of other peoples things. The wolf wasn't wanted where the sheep were and they made that very clear. The bright colors and the funky words that were added made this book fun to read and interesting for children to look at.

Fun rhyming story with extra, extra fluffy sheep. ( )

This story is hilarious. The illustrations are playful and energetic. I like that some of the artwork is presented in frames like in a graphic novel because it really shows more detail of what happens during each of the wolf's escapades. I like that the grandma is witty in this story versus being helpless like in other versions of Red Riding Hood; she ties the end of the sweater she knit for the wolf onto her bedpost so the wolf is discovered. I enjoy that this book doesn't shy away from taboo topics like poop or eating lamb (that way kids really know where food comes from). ( )
