There's a Wolf at the Door

This creative and lively book is a retelling of five classic fairy tales by Zoe Alley with illustrations by R.W. Alley.  The illustrations are set up like a graphic novel that is easy to follow.  The dialog is updated and quick witted. It made me giggle several times with the sarcastic comments of the sheep exposing their point of view.  I started to feel sorry for the wolf by the end of the book.  This is a fun read for second through fifth graders with a good sense of humor.
