I'm a sucker for Aesop stories, and this one is done right. For one thing the drawings are funny and the moral of story is put out there first thing, so that kids can think about what the story means as they are reading it, or listening to someone else read it.

The text is at the 3rd grade reading level, and the font is good sized. In fact, this might be a good book for a reluctant reader at that level because there are fewer than 400 words.

There are not drawings on every page, but there are frequently little silhouettes under the text --with the drawings on the right hand page. In the silhouettes the wolf is sneaking around in an exaggerated manner. And the expressions in the drawings by Nancy Harrison are just priceless.

No overt violence. The wolf does carry off the sheep, and the shepherd at one point does carry off what he thinks is a sheep for dinner.
