There's a Wolf at The Door retold by Zoe B. Alley
If your looking for a funny an appropriate graphic novel to share with young children, look no further! This is a great graphic novel for younger elementary students. In this rather large book, about 12 by18, it combines five classic stories, such as Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs that all involve the same wolf and puts a humorous spin on all the tales that makes it fun for young readers. Not only will the text capture the reader, but the illustrations are great! The pictures are full of detail and even without words explain the story. Teachers this is a great example to show to your class as an example of a graphic novel and would be a fun read aloud with the large pictures. I thought this was a great combination of stories with a funny twist that would be both fun for adults and children. I recommend this book for anyone in the mood to laugh, it was great!
