Back of Book: “A lamb for my supper will taste mighty fine!”
Thought a wily old wolf by the name of Lou Pine.
As he sneakily, slyly snuck up on the flock
But it wasn’t the sheep that were in for a shock.

With a stunningly cunning plan, Lou Pine, finds a disguise that is sure to deliver a lamb stew or two. But this flock of sheep aren’t quite the dumb mutton they seem.
My Review: This story follows a wolf in his attempts to catch a sheep for his dinner. However, he doesn’t plan for Rambo the Ram. The story follows his funny antics as he tries several different ways to get his dinner. Children will laugh as the wolf strikes out over and over. The fun twist in this story is the addition of the grandmother from Little Red Riding Hood. It creates a fractured fairy tale within the story line. Peter Bently is an amazing storyteller and has the ability to create fun and creative characters that children will love and remember. The illustrations are fun and match the funny storyline. This is a perfect book for circle time or a read aloud. It can be used for cause and effect or fractured fairy tale units.
