Poor Wolf—he’s so lonely! Nobody wants to be his friend.
Not the ducklings, not the goslings, not the fuzzy yellow chicks. “Perhaps it’s because
I’m big and scary,” he thinks. “Perhaps it’s because I’m bad, bad, bad.” Then he has a bright idea: What if he changes his ways and becomes good? What if he does a noble deed?
But, none of the animals will listen when Wolf tries to tell them about his new plan.
They just flee in terror, slamming the door right in his face. Then something really awful happens: one of the ducklings disappears and everybody thinks Wolf has eaten him all up. Can the Big Bad Wolf prove he didn’t have duck for dinner—and bring the lost little baby safely home? A charming and delightfully fractured fairy tale about friendship, and a
wonderful example for children that a person can change, with sweet and funny
illustrations that will delight youngsters over and over again.

A proverbial bull in the china shop, Elephant charges enthusiastically into Playschool—only to create a series of mishaps, from knocking over Lion’s carefully stacked blocks and squashing Hyena’s book to breaking the swing.

The more the Big Bad Wolf tries to shed his big bad reputation, the more he gets the same terrified response from the local bird population.
