A wolf's plan to fatten up a chicken for a nice stew goes awry. The story is cute and amusing, but I didn't find the art particularly exciting.

Themes: wolves, chickens, cooking

Ages: 3 - 7 ( )

The wolf is hungry for some chicken, but he wants to fatten up the chicken. He bakes lots of treats several nights in a row, but then when he goes to get the chicken, she isn't fat, she had been feeding the treats to her 100 chicks. So then the wolf gets lots of kisses, and he continues to bake treats for the chicken. This would be a good book to show how the ending isn't always what we expect. I would use this story with kids that are k-2.

A very cute story representing what it is to be a "good" person and seeing things from a different perspective the "big bad wolf' in a sense, learns what it is to love another. ( )

This book made me smile! This is Kasza's first published book in America and it's pretty great! The art is pleasant and entertaining to look at, and even kids who are having a hard time reading on their own will like flipping through it just for the fun pictures.

Plot: The main character is a wolf who absolutely loves to eat! He decides he wants to have chicken stew, and finds a chicken that he plans on devouring. At the last minute, he decides she isn't plump enough and before he eats her he wants to fatten her up. He begins to anonymously drop off delicious pastries in large quantities at her coupe, and on the day he decides to come back to see if she's grown plump enough he finds out instead that he has been feeding the delicacies to her many, many children. Mama Chicken feeds him dinner, and he bashfully leaves thinking to himself that maybe he'll keep baking them food.

I feel like this would be a good book to start a discussion with children about doing the right thing, their favorite foods, and how it can feel good to make things for other people. ( )
