Urgency Emergency! Big Bad Wolf

Summary:

Nurse Percy is scared. The ambulance just delivered a wolf to City Hospital. Wolf or not, he is a patient, and Dr. Glenda has to take care of him. So she examines the wolf's throat to figure out why he is choking. Could it really be a missing grandma?


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Humor in pictures and words make this a fun story to share, and an exceptional choice for developing readers. Big Bad Wolf has great potential as a book for mixed audiences.

Content Awareness Factors:

None.


Little Kid Reaction

Our pre-teen is too old for this, but it didn't stop her from picking the book from my desk and reading it. She laughed her way through it and commented that "little kids will love this."

Parent Reaction

What a fun, story. The fact that it could amuse my picky pre-teen says a lot! Although it is probably funnier if you know the story of Little Red Riding Hood, it would still be amusing to kids who don't. I especially loved that the ER doctor is female (Dr. Glenda) and Nurse Percy is male.

Type of Book:
This is a creative ending for the LIttle Red Riding Hood fairy tale.
Educational Themes:

With the story told in dialogue, it is easy to take turns with partner reading, or creating a "reader's theater" and turning it into a script. With older kids, you can talk about fractured fairy tales.
