The BIG BAD WOLF is back—and funnier (but not scarier) than ever!
A wolf deserves a vacation too! Bernard, the ferociously funny wolf and clever, cookie-munching hero of Delphine Perret's award-winning book, certainly thinks so. So when he learns that his pal Louis is vacationing by the sea with his grandpa, Bernard wants to go too. He promises not to eat any children along the way (he’s a vegetarian).
Soon they're off on a wacky road trip complete with car seats filled with cookie crumbs and lots of laughs along the way. The trip culminates with the perfect day on the beach where the three joyfully race into the sea.
My kids love this fun-filled adventure featuring Bernard and Louis, and they certainly have a different view of the "big bad wolf". (Who knew he was a vegetarian and doesn't devour naughty little children who frolic in the woods?!)
Obviously, my toddlers cannot read this book independently just yet. But we read it together, and they are able to follow along with the story quite easily, since the pages are laid out almost like a comic book is. This book is very visual, so younger children are sure to enjoy it.
I have to warn you, you're probably going to end up with a case of the hiccups while reading this book. It's full of humor that both children and adults alike can appreciate, and there are even lessons learned along the way. I would definitely recommend this book to any families out there who are looking for an entertaining read that breaks the stereotype of the "big bad wolf". Bernard is certainly not what you'd expect!
Speaking of vacations, here are some vacationing tips straight from the wolf himself:
· Don’t eat the children (you’ll have no one to play with!)
· Be kind to Grandma and Grandpa because they buy you ice cream
· Always use sunblock and sunglasses on the beach (to prevent pre-mature wolf aging!)
· Try not to get cookie crumbs on the car seat
