There's a Wolf at the Door by Zoe Alley
rating: 4 of 5 stars
I admit it, I usually want the underdog (or 'wolf' in this case) to win! I suppose having a wolf "win" wouldn't exactly make an appropriate children's book, but it would be nice if he was able to eat something!
In any case, There's a Wolf at the Door is a fun read consisting of cleverly put together familiar fairy tales all linked by the wolf. The story is presented in an oversized, graphic novel format including lively pen and ink drawings by R. W. Alley that expound upon the already humorously written text.
The only draw back I see is the extra large format which may cause potential readers to shy away from it thinking that it's a book for "little kids". If you're with your child at the library though and come across the title, encourage him to take a peek inside!
