Beware of the Storybook Wolves

(2000)
A Picture Book by

 
Every night Herb's mother would read him a bedtime story. Sometimes it was about a big wolf who terrified little girls and their grandmothers with his chilling growl and his big yellow teeth. You could tell from the picture that toothpaste had never been on his shopping list.The story got very nasty in the middle and everybody nearly came to a sticky end ... but ... by the last page ... it had all turned out well and went happy-ever-afterly.
But when the story ends, Herb insists that his mum takes the book away with her just in case the wolf jumps out of the book to get him. His mother thinks he's being a bit silly, but usually does as she is asked until one night she forgets and Herb is proved right: the wolf does jump out to get him and he is left to sort out the problem with just a little help from a few other storybook favourites...Beware the Storybook Wolves is a superb book with "Award-Winner" written all over it. Lauren Child's quirky illustrations combine with a unique and funny story that leaves the young reader breathless with every turn, using familiar fairy-tale characters to turn childhood fears on their heads.Read this book and laugh out loud (just wait till you see the solution to Herb's problems!) while warding off your child's fears of things that go bump in the night. (Age 4 and over) --Susan Harrison
