Due the length of the book it can also be used cross curricular in ICT, as learning about story writing, where you can use this in applications such as story beeware where children can create their own short story similar to the book and add in their own illustrations. The wolf’s intentions are clear from the start; he plans on eating the boy. The illustrations inside the book are also colourful and very good to help children gain a better understanding of what is happening in the story.

Overall this is a good read and teachers could incorporate this story in various ways to bewate their teaching. However the boy cleverly distracts the wolf from eating him straight away by suggesting he makes a soup. The little boy traps the wolf in his cave and manages to make it home in time for supper. Taking the story further, children can discuss the moral behind the story and the real victim.

Upon returning to his cave and the bewware, the boy tells the wolf that he has forgotten oc salt, an ingredient that was never mentioned. I would highly recommend this for guided reading for year 2 upwards as some of the text and the use of puns may be blunrell difficult for those younger.

With each errand the wolf becomes increasingly tired and frustrated. If only it were that simple. It can link into list writing, recipe writing and method writing; all these different areas within the story.

Oct 02, Katherine Dyson rated it really liked it. I feel that children would enjoy putting their own ideas and viewpoints into creating their own twisted tales. Also, throughout the entire book the boy is always smiling and the wolf is mainly looking confused, tired and impatient.

For example, if the boy were to be portrayed as scared at the beginning when being taken away or if the artwork were to be less cartoon in its nature and more blunell. And the wolf obliges by roaring – because he had misunderstood the question. This story is best suited for year 2 bewre it contains some difficult words, tricky language features and some concepts which children might misinterpret.

The text is easily divided into sections blundwll questions can be easily developed for each of the sections to successfully assess children’s language comprehension. The inclusion of recipes throughout the book would make an excellent cross-curricular resource for English where children could devise their own recipes.

The little boy asks the wolf whether he will cook him first and the wolf replies saying what he had in mind. The book is very original,humorous and engaging for children especially those who have read the original fairy tales.

I think this tale would be suitable for the higher years in Key Stage 1 and the lower years in Key Stage 2. There is a brilliant twist at the end of the story which is complemented by small nods to this throughout the story and ‘This is no ordinary fairy tale and no ordinary small boy!
