Claude really loves wolves. Big, bad ones. So we have been reading Wolf Books. It all started when she fell in love with Fairy Tales, especially "The Three Little Pigs". She's the kind of kid that likes the versions when the wolf eats the pigs. She heard "Little Red Riding Hood" and then we were on a mission to read as many Wolf Books as possible. We were doing this all summer. Then low and behold, the NY Times Book Review was talking about wolves this month! Clearly, Claude is a trendsetter.
For your reading pleasure, I gathered a list of Wolf Books that Claude enjoyed:
"Mr. Wolf's Pancakes", "Mr. Wolf and the Three Bears", and "Mr. Wolf and the Amazing Turnip" by Jan Fearnley
"The Wolf's Chicken Stew" by Keiko Kasza
"Wolf's Coming" by Joe Kulka
"There's a Wolf at the Door" by Zoe B. Alley and R.W. Alley
"Little Red Riding Hood" by James Marshall
"Wolves" by Emily Gravett
"Where's the Big Bad Wolf" by Eileen Christelow
"Big Wolf and Little Wolf: The Leaf That Wouldn't Fall" by Nadine Brun-Cosme and Olivier Tallec
"The Chicken Thief" by Beatrice Rodriguez
"Small Bad Wolf" by Sean Taylor
"Big Bad Wolves at School" by Stephen Krensky
"Nicky and the Big Bad Wolves" by Valeri Gorbachev
"Beware of the Storybook Wolves" by Lauren Child
"The Sheep in Wolf's Clothing" by Helen Lester
"The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig" by Eugene Trivizas and Helen Oxenbury
Some of these books were parodies, which Francis really enjoyed. Claude just loved the copious wolf exposure. In addition to general wolfery, any fairy tale by Paul Galdone and James Marshall was gobbled up in this house.
For the sake of editing this post with so many titles, logical punctuation was used.
