In this irresistible reversal of the classic tale, we meet Little Wolf, who is tired of the same old dinners like Lamburgers and Sloppy Does. How he wishes his mother could serve a nice platter of his favorite dish-Boy! The only problem is that Boy is just too hard to come by these days. So what's the best way for rascally Little Wolf to get his parents all stirred up and postpone his boring dinner? By yelling, "BOY! BOY!" on his way home from school-sending his parents on a wild hunt all over the countryside! But how long will Little Wolf's trick work? And what will happen to him (and to dinner) when a real boy finally does come along?

Little Wolf’s high-top sneakers and hat, along with a sour look on his face, give him a little devil look that fits the storyline perfectly.
