Review:

Dear Mum and Dad, Please please PLEEEEZ let me come home. You just think I am a goody-goody, I bet. Is that the reason why I have to go away for badness lessons? I only cleaned my teeth last week for a joke. And brushing my fur, and going to bed early, that was just tricks to trick you! Why must I go to Cunning College to learn Uncle Bigbad's 9 Rules of Badness? Please let me come home and learn to be bad at home. PLEE-E-EEZ. Yours fedupply Little Wolf
All Little Wolf wants to do is stay home with his mum and dad and baby brother, Smellybreff. Instead he is packed of to Cunning College to earn a Gold BAD Badge. At Cunning College, he finds the first three rules fairly easy to master--after all, huffing and puffing a lot, saying loads of rude words and fibbing your head off aren't such difficult things to learn. But as for the rest...Little Wolf just does not understand, and through his letters to his family the reader is learns just what he is really going through while he is so far away from home.

A highly original, wickedly funny book, Little Wolf's Book of Badness is an absolute hoot and is a must for any child who enjoys a good giggle. Parents, too, will wallow in the wit of the writing which deservedly won the author Ian Whybrow and illustrator Tony Ross the TSB Birmingham Book Award and the prestigious Di Cento Prize in Italy--just one of the many countries in which it is published.

A great book for reading together (with endless opportunities for the grown-ups to really get into the part!), Little Wolf's Book of Badness will appeal to the child in everyone and delight young readers everywhere. (Age 5 and over) --Susan Harrison

Review:

..".Written in a style somewhere between A. A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh and Dav Pilkey's The Adventures of Captain Underpants (Scholastic, 1997)... Successful as comedy, fractured fairy tale, and coming-of-age story all in one, Little Wolf's Book of Badness is terrific."
