Booktalk #1

The bad wolves are tired of being chased away by all the animals.  They need to come up with a plan so they can get some nice juicy food.  The plan is simple.  They will dress up like sheep and pass themselves off as the Peep Sisters.  You know, the ones that we lost by Little Bo Peep.  Can they pull it off?  What do you think?

Booktalk #2

Heard all those “big bad wolf” stories? Willy and Wally Wolf are pleased that you have and proud as can be of their reputations. Did I mention that they are up to no good again? Yup, costumes, makeup and a ‘sheepish’ plan to get another good meal. Do they succeed? You will have to visit this book and see if they can “pull the wool” over the ewe’s eyes.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2006-2007)
