The Wolf and the Seven Kids: A Grimm and Gross Retelling


Mama Goat has seven little kids who are pretty smart for their age. Before Mama goes into the forest for some food, she warns the kids to stay inside and not let anyone in. Especially the Wolf! But soon after she leaves, the hairy menace shows up and tries to fool the suspicious siblings into believing he is their mother. Will the kids see through his clever disguises, or will they end up as breakfast, lunch, and dinner? This fractured retelling of The Wolf and Seven Young Kids, a lesser-known tale from the Brothers Grimm, will make readers giggle, groan, and gasp with delight. Especially when they learn how a needle and thread come to the kids’ rescue!
