What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

“Nothing ever happens here,” the shepherd thinks. But the bored boy knows what would be exciting: He cries that a wolf is after his sheep, and the town’s people come running. How often can that trick work, though? B.G. Hennessy’s retelling of this timeless fable is infused with fanciful whimsy through Boris Kulikov’s hilarious and ingenious illustrations. This tale is sure to leave readers grinning sheepishly.

This is a classic story, but I felt the re-telling was just okay, and when the second illustration shows the shepherd boy picking his nose, that definitely put me off.
