The wolf in this story is pretty convincing of his side of things :) It is always fun when these traditional tales are retold. The wolf introduces himself with a real name and as we get to know him in the first couple of pages he seems like he has a pretty good character. He doesn't seem big and bad at all. By the end of the story we see that he has ended up with a punishment that he might not see fair, which is why he has written this tale. You can be the judge, was he innocent?
