    1. In this first attempt at both writing and illustrating simultaneously, John Rocco delivers a delightful twist on the story of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf." Told from the point-of-view of the wolf, the character devises a plan to get a goat in order to have a tasty meal. However, when the goat proves more valuable that the wolf realized, he and the goat become fast friends.The story is beautifully illustrated. While the pages are each bordered, the illustrations are full-page, but spill over into whi [...]


    2. Who would have thought of such a twists for the story "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" - I loved how the wolf is now so old and the story makes this clear by his cracking bones, hearing aid and tiredness. I also like how this story takes on the wolf's side of the story a few years down the road. The illustrations are beautiful as well as the use of words. It seems to take place in either China or Japan, some elements seem to be Chinese and others Japanese, this part is not clear to me, but either way, t [...]





    3. This was a wonderful spin off from the tale "The Boy Who Cried Wolf!" The story is about an older wolf who is tired and was more annoyed with the little boy who kept crying wolf than the weeds growing in his garden. Well the wolf never appeared and was never close enough because the boy would always scream it out. The wolf couldn't even dream about goats without the boy crying out wolf. So when the boy was content one day the wolf crept up behind him and scared the little boy and said he could t [...]


    4. Shifting the focus from a bored young boy to an aged, irritated wolf, Mr. Rocco has created an amusingly sly twist on an old Aesop tale. Setting the story in China, the author/illustrator dazzles with one glorious color spread after another as gorgeously painted florae and faunae fill the pages. The lupine’s journey to find the mysterious “wolf” caller is only one of many beautiful pictures sure to delight readers of all ages.The faces of the villagers and the young boy are individual and [...]


    5. Not just another "Boy Who Cried Wolf" story. This one has an aged wolf, barely able to hobble around, who has to plant a garden to have something to eat. When a shepherd boy cries "Wolf!" just to get attention once too often, the elderly wolf decides to work out a deal with him. John Rocco's rich watercolors place the whole story in China (the wolf wears a red kimono and carries a pleated paper umbrella!), which adds delightful visual appeal to this picture book for ages 4-8. Go request a copy f [...]


    6. The hungry old wolf can't seem to grow anything but weeds in his garden, and he's too slow to chase rabbits or birds anymore. He has no friends on the mountain, so it's curious when he hears his name called by a young goat-herd. The wolf wonders if the boy is inviting him to dine on one of his scrumptious-looking goats, but hides when angry villagers approach.This hilarious retelling of The Boy Who Cried Wolf is set in East Asia (presumably China or Japan) and is beautifully illustrated. Readers [...]


    7. This was a pretty good book, certainly the kind where things work out a lot better than your traditional fairy tale. The illustrations are vibrant and lively, very convincing and detailed though in a more cartoonish manner than a realistic portrait style that some artists go for. The whole story was quietly entertaining and enjoyable. I had a good time with the entire thing.


    8. A great new look at the classic story "The Boy who Cried Wolf". This wolf is Asian, and also a vegetarian. His garden will not grow and there's a boy who keeps crying wolf all the time. When a Sheep is finaly given to the wolf he must decide if he wants to eat it of if there's another choice that can be made.


    9. In a new edition of the boy who cries wolf, we find an old hungry wolf, trying to grow some veggies in his garden. Unfortunately all he gets is weeds. Enter the little boy who cries wolf and the angry villagers. Will Wolf ever get food? Will the little boy continue to cry wolf? I'm a huge fan of John Rocco and this will be one I definitely add to the collection at school.


    10. This is a fantastic take on one of Aesop's fables. The illustrations are rich, colorful and expressive, just amazing. The Chinese backdrop and details like lotus flowers and cherry blossoms are gorgeous. And the ending is a bit surprising, but sweet. We really enjoyed this tale and it's a perfect tale to read at bedtime.


    11. Can't agree enough with other reviewers. A great take on the Boy Who Cried wolf, set in ancient China, with an wolf long-in-the-tooth! Ha! Been waiting to use that one. The illustrations are pretty great. My favorite spread is the one where the wolf is soaking his feet in the stream. Onry wolf and beautiful fish swimming about priceless!


    12. Great twist on a classic tale, very clever. I loved the artwork and choreography. It has an Asian setting and cast, although it doesn't specify its location, and there were one or two women amongst the villagers but the main protagonists were male.


    13. The different twist on the boy who cried wolf was great! The illustrations are amazing as well and they do a great job of tying in a new culture to the familiar children's story. The shift in perspective by being able to see the wolf's viewpoint would be interesting to have kids examine.


    14. This story was too adorable! It is a new take on the old "the boy who cried wolf" tale, involving an old, tired, grumpy wolf who tricks the boy into delivering him a wolf. Even better, the wolf discovers the goat eats all the weeds from his garden so he can have fresh vegetablesd a new friend.


    15. Fabulous twist on an old Aesop fable! Gorgeous illustrationsThis would be so fun for Pre-K/Kindergarteners (and others studying fractured folk tales). I like the fact that it took place in Japan, too.


    16. In addition to the unusual variation of the Boy Who Cried Wolf tale where the wolf turns out to be a good guy, the illustrations are stunning. The original moral is there, but also friendship and a lifetime of good food is better than the brief satisfaction of gobbling up one goat.


    17. The illustrations are marvelous (especially the expressions) and the story has a delightful, unexpected twist. I liked the oriental setting. Definitely one I'd like to add to the classroom library.


    18. The boy who cried wolf from the wolf's perspective. Cute story with values I want my kids to learn. The art is great, and it is set somewhere Asian. It's like we won the lottery for things we want to see in a book with this one! Thanks to a co-worker who pointed it out.


    19. Wonderful illustrations, accompanying a bizarre retooling of the-boy-who-cried-wolf. This time, the wolf becomes a vegetarian! As a vegetarian myself, I still found the message within this retelling to be embarrassingly heavy-handed and ridiculous.


    20. "Wolf! Wolf! Is a fractured fairy tale based on "The Boy Who Cried Wolf". This story is unique, basing its setting in ancient China. Readers will enjoy the unexpected twists the story takes. And the illustrations are delightful.




    21. Good use of Aesop’s fable as a jumping-off point for this tale set in ancient China. Also a good message about finding help where it’s least expected. (Multicultural)
