    Fable 1st 2nd grade.This fable takes place on two sides of the mountains The main character is a little boy named Willy and he lived on one side and on the other side lived the wolf This wolf was like no other in that he would put on his dinner jacket before he went to the other side of the mountains to eat people Everyone in the town was very afraid of the wolf Willy would cry wolf just to get out of things he did not like to do such as taking a bath and violin lessons He even cried wo Fable 1st 2nd grade.This fable takes place on two sides of the mountains The main character is a little boy named Willy and he lived on one side and on the other side lived the wolf This wolf was like no other in that he would put on his dinner jacket before he went to the other side of the mountains to eat people Everyone in the town was very afraid of the wolf Willy would cry wolf just to get out of things he did not like to do such as taking a bath and violin lessons He even cried wolf just for fun Then one day as he was riding his bike in the mountains the wolf came out and began to chase him back to town Willy cried wolf but no one would listen They did not believe him and told him that he shouldn t have told so many lies As the wolf caught up to Willy, he decided to eat the adults instead What do you think this wolf will have for dessert A strength in this folktale is the lesson being taught that is not a good thing to lie and that no one believes a liar A weakness in this story is that it visually portrays the wolf as a gentleman in his fancy dinner jacket The townspeople are not dressed up as fancy which might show a negative image of people in society who are rich I would recommend this title to first and second graders to teach them about the negative consequences of lying The illustrations in this book are created using black ink and watercolors Each of the images matches the sequencing of the text on each page All the figures are outlined black ink and the colors used are not overly bright as from a neutral spring pastel pallet

    This is the story of a boy that seeks attention from the townspeople by crying wolf while out shepherding sheep After a while they grow weary, and at the last, chose to ignore her cries The boy learns his lesson when the others come to the pasture to find him hiding in a tree and dead sheep strewn around the pasture The wolf had in fact come that time In the end, this is a great story for young children who feel compelled to seek attention and lie or embellish to achieve it.

    The boy was protecting the sheep by wolves for the people He decided to prank the people and cry wold numerous times when there was not a wolf Finally the people got sick of it Finally there was a wolf and the people did not believe him It is hard to believe a liar when they are telling the truth.

    This is a tongue in cheek, humorous take on the classic fable If you are looking for an alternate version of the classic fable this would be appropriate for children about age 8 and up I don t think my first graders are the right audience.

    Samma uppskattade format som p Pandora s box med b de engelska och grekiska, tycker det r s himla praktiskt Denna historia var inte lika rik dock, den var v ldigt platt, om n lite lustig Jag r glad att jag fick l sa den, men inte n dv ndigtvis f r inneh llets skull.

    The artwork and illustrations are nice and it s an easy read The only problem I find is with the violent end Maybe that was the lesson the author was trying to pass on about the results of lying.
