Review: The Boy who Cried Wolf

Title: The Boy Who Cried Wolf
Author: B.G. Hennessy (retold)
Date: March 7, 2006

I borrowed this book from the library today because my son who is in kindergarden has been telling everyone and anyone that when he gets to school that he doesn’t feel well so they use to bring him to the office. Now they are catching on and don’t bring him. He was telling me that his teacher doesn’t believe him anymore so I told him about this story.

I told my son that he was like the boy cried wolf. He had no clue about what I was talking about. This book is a funnier version of the classic tale. The plot is the same, but humorous embellishments have been added to the story. “I am the most bored boy in the world,” the shepherd says and the picture of the little shepherd is of him picking his nose. For fun he runs into the town yelling, “Wolf! Wolf! Wolf.” The towns people answer his cries twice but ignore him the third time, when three hungry wolves actually do appear. The ending is cute the sheep end up in a tree rather than a wolf’s stomach.
