    " This book is a retelling of the original fable just with some added details that made for a longer and more fun story. I think the best part of this book was the illustrations. They were entertaining, colorful and very detailed. The illustrations done with the different fonts were also very pleasing, such as when the boy cried wolf it would be in all capitals, or how when the sheep "Baaaa"ed it would be in wavy letters. Although it was a retelling of the original, it still taught the wonderful lesson of being trustworthy and respectful towards other people in order to get the trust and respect back. "

    " A classic short story by B.G. Hennessy centred on a boy who goes out in the streets and screams 'wolf' in an attempt to drive his neighbours out of their homes to save him. Once they answer his call he laughs and mocks them. After repeating his scam three times one day the boy is really attacked and eaten up by a wolf and as he screams, no one responds. This is an excellent story for young children to be exposed to early on in their school experience to convey a powerful message. The consequence of lying and cheating continuously almost always leads to miserable outcomes. "

    " I absolutely loved this book! I feel like it was the same as I always remembered it, just a bit more added to it that made it even better! The way it was written with different style fonts was great, but also the illustrations were absolutely amazing! It was a very colorful book that I know many children would enjoy reading. It also teaches a great lesson about being honest, which is always a good thing for kids to learn at a young age. "

    " Mommy says: Nicely done version of the classic. Check out the bugs. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linh Tong | 2/2/2014

    " I like the message of this book about being honest. People will not believe a person who constantly lies. This can teach students to tell the truth about situations in the classroom. I would read this book to the whole class because it talks about the consequences of lieing and encourages students to tell the truth. "

    " Beautifully told and illustrated book. The boy learns his lesson about not telling the truth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Horace Mann Family Reading Challenge | 1/20/2014

    " The boy who cried wolf is a story about a boy who almost every time lied, but after he learned his lesson. T.R. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 1/18/2014

    " The boy who cried wolf is a fun book for younger readers. However, it always has a lesson to teach. This book is full of nice pictures that keep the story going. "

    " I really liked the illustrator of this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Destinee Sutton | 1/11/2014

    " I think the ending of this is very gentle (i.e. a cop out). The boy is totally supposed to get eaten! But the illustrations are great and I think this is one of the best morality tales out there (especially if the boy gets it in the end). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick Stoner | 1/11/2014

    " This is the long American tale that everyone knows. If this story can be instilled in children from a young age they can learn to not lie or play jokes with serous matters. I really like this story because it always holds true. I would share this book with K and first graders. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 1/9/2014

    " This non-fiction picture of the old folktale has great illustrations. The students like to point out the small details on each page. And I like to talk about the lesson learned by the boy in the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tuyet Tran | 1/9/2014

    " Honesty is the best of policy. If you happens to lie too much, no one will believe you anymore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dolores | 1/1/2014

    " Timeless fable with an important message. Expressive illustrations. Pairs wonderfully with "The Wolf Who Cried Boy." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ranata | 12/27/2013

    " Teaches a valuable lesson about embellishing. George W. Bush should have read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy Vu | 12/9/2013

    " This is a good book to learn about the life on a farm. You can learn that wolves eat sheep, which is a part of the food chain. Grades 2-4. "

    " it was cute, but i need to be better about addressing the moral of the story when i read it to them. i think it varies from the original folk tale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa Nastja | 10/6/2012

    " A classic story of morals and not lying to people who want to help you. This is a great book to read to your students who a situation like this comes up. "

    " Great Illustrations. My boy loves the humor in this version. "

    " Great illustrations! Really nice adaptation of an age-old story. Fun to have student decide what was going to happen next when they get to last page. "

    " The Russian Twist really added a lot to the book, but quite honestly it wasn't as hood as I thought it might be. The attractive entertainment did not sit well with my stomach, so I was forced to compete with each other. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Inspired Kathy | 11/13/2010

    " Cute retelling of the boy who cried wolf. My kids got a good laugh out of the bored boy picking his nose and the sheep in a tree at the end. "
