Reviews

K-Gr 3-Rufus's parents are worried that he will not be able to survive out in the world, so they send him to the Big Bad Wolf Academy in this iconographic rendering of Stephen Krensky's book (S & S, 2007). Rufus has a hard time fitting in at the boarding school. He can't huff and puff, wear disguises properly, or master sheep language like the other wolves. He prefers to investigate by sniffing, running around the school, and howling at the moon. When hunters invade the school, the other students try to defend themselves with the usual wolf techniques, but the hunters are not deterred. But when Rufus begins to howl and the other wolves follow suit, the hunters retreat. Brad Sneed's humorous watercolor illustrations are manipulated using various camera techniques to achieve movement, and Jim Brownold provides excellent narration. In this "Special Appearance Video," Krensky talks about his inspiration for the book. Youngsters will want to see this again and again.-Stephanie Bange, Wilmington-Stroop Branch, Dayton Metro Library, OH Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
