Role play of stories is an effective aid which contributes in building confidence in the child and allows exploration of different bewwre, emotions and feelings.

When he returns, the boy prompts the wolf wolf on a missing ingredient, leading to the repetitive cycle of the wolf being continually being outsmarted by the boy, who eventually plays out an ingenius plan of escaping the clutches of the wolf unharmed and bewage home to his mum, along with the vast number of ingredients collected by the wolf throughout the course of their time together!

I think this book is well suited to children in key stage 1 and key stage 2 although it may be needed to be explained further in key stage 1 as there are some difficult phrases and the use of pun although the book has excellent illustrations.


Beware of Boys

Although, not the most moral of tales,it does provide children with the feeling that someone small can trick someone who is larger, and at times I feel this could be empowering. This hungry wolf is eager to eat the boy, however the biys boy persuades the wolf to collect an array of ingredients to make him even more appetising. There are only two characters throughout the book, the wolf and the boy.

This beare is about a Little boy who manages to outsmart a wolf who has captured him, whilst taking a short cut in the forest. This could also be used in a cross-curricular way, as there are many humorous images presented throughout this book, and it would be a fun activity for pupils to create their own depictions of some lf the items the wolf had to collect.

If only it were that simple. This discussion could be truly multi-curricular with targetted questions and debate ranging from: If used for guided reading, there are a broad range of activities which can be thought of allowing a teacher to be creative in her teaching methods. This was a very enjoyable book that I feel children will engage with. Taking the story further, children can discuss the moral behind the story and the real victim.

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!

This book could also be used by older pupils within a creative writing framework.

He writes with witty prose which is sophisticated enough to interest adults but independently manageable for children from the ages of seven to nine years of age.
