The Big Bad Wolf Goes on Vacation

Spring 2013 Picture Books
Ages: 4 & Up
Author: Delphine Perret
Illustrator: Delphine Perret
ISBN: 9781402786334
Hardcover Price: $12.95

Delphine Perret's The Big Bad Wolf Goes on Vacation depicts the story of a boy, Louis, and his best friend Bernard, better known as The Big Bad Wolf. Together the two embark on a summertime road-trip to the beach with Louis' grandfather.

Perret depicts their adventures in a boundless, comic format, filling each page with four panels not set off from each other by lines. Many laughs come at Bernard's expense. He can't seem to stop people like the toll collector from referring to him as a cute dog, and he has a hard time finding food that meets his finicky dietary preferences (no meat allowed, but sardines are fine). Children will love seeing another side of a classic fairy tale villain, and they'll learn fun lessons from Louis' energetic grandfather.
