NEW PICTURE BOOKS | The Wolf who cried Boy

The wolf who cried boy by James O'Neil and illustrated by Russell Ayto.

I absolutely love this one - an original storyline made out of a twist on a classic tale.

The villagers tell their children the wolves are dangerous, except the wolves are really lovely.  The wolves tell THEIR children the villagers are dangerous (they really are...)

Extremely clever illustrations, combining the use of colour and black & white, varying the size and position of the text to make the overall design eye-catching and interesting.

We discover what happens when the Boy who cries "Wolf" meets the Wolf who cries "Boy!".  Are you with me?

This really is a classic in the making - a brilliant new picture book which should be on everyone's shelves, on everyone's Christmas list, and in every classroom.  Loved it.
