Wolf Won't Bite! by Emily Gravett- ESSENTIAL

Gravett, Emily. Wolf Won’t Bite! 32 pgs.  Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers.  $16.99. Content: G PICTURE BOOK.

For those who loved the story of the Three Little Pigs, this is a must.  In a wolf/pig reversal, the pigs do everything they can to tease and taunt the wolf, knowing that surely he won’t bite!  Or will he?  

With the repetition of “wolf won’t bite” students can predict text and help read aloud.  The illustrations are simple and drawn on mostly white backdrop yet detailed enough to tell the story by themselves.  We loved this book!  

Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer: SL.
