Not Your Usual Animal Picture Book

Emily Gravett’s Wolves is on a shelf in my classroom along with a number of other snarky books about fairytale-like wolves. Ones like The Big Bad Wolf and Me and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. Those latter two have relatively happy endings while Gravett’s is a bit different (although she does provide an alternative one for squeamish types). All this is just to say there is an interesting profile of her today in the Independent.

  1. What about Trivizas’ Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig?


  2. Know it, but don’t own it. Is it very snarky, though? Can’t remember.

    I haven’t intentionally collected fairytale wolves books, just happened to notice that I had a lot and started shelving them together. There are more, but I can’t recall what they are at the moment.
