What would you do if you were face-to-face with the Big Bad Wolf? You would probably scream and run for your life, right? Well, the Big Bad Wolf is tired of that and he is on a mission to change his and his friends’, Mr. Shark, Mr. Snake and Mr. Piranha’s reputations as the “Bad Guys.” From now on he wants them to be known as the “Good Guys,” but in order to do that he must convince them that they must perform good deeds. First up: freeing 200 dogs from the Maximum Security City Dog Pound.

Written with hilarity and wit that will have even adults laughing, this is a great introduction to chapter books for beginner readers.
