There Is No Big Bad Wolf In This Story by Lou Carter – Illustrated by Deborah Allwright.

The Big Bad Wolf is late AGAIN and is ruining stories as he rushes through the forest to Grandma’s house. When the Three Little Pigs get seriously grumpy AGAIN, Wolf tells them he’s had ENOUGH. There will be no more HUFFING and PUFFING from this Big Bad Wolf. The fairytale characters aren’t worried – they can totally manage without him!

But Big Bad Wolfing is harder than it looks . And what happens when they realise that they really need a Big Bad Wolf in this story?

My Thoughts


My daughter Rosie absolutely loves curling up on my knee with a book, so when this book arrived it is safe to say she couldn’t wait to get stuck in right away.

When The Big Bad Wolf steps away from his role in the familiar tale after being moaned at once again by the characters he shares the pages with, we get to see how important he actually is within this book. My daughter found the story engaging and it kept her interest throughout. The story was written in a fun, immersive way that really allows the children to follow the story easily and recognise the links to the original story too.

Each page of this book is eye-catching and colourful, something that certainly kept my daughters attention and had her eagerly awaiting the illustrations that awaited her as the page turned.

This book was certainly a hit with my youngest child, and is a story we will be enjoying with one another time and time again. A delightful book that I would happily recommend to others.
