“Where is the Bad Wolf?” is the leitmotif of this picture book written by Juan Arjona. A story about fairy tales, packed with intertextuality, that will make you laugh and will keep you up all night!
From the very first line, we know that the Bad Wolf disappears in the middle of the story. But let’s see what we got here. We know he had lunch, then washed his teeth and afterwards he took a nap. The alarm clock rang at 5 PM and he went for a ride in his car. That was the last time he was seen by the sheep.
He vanishes without a trace on page 6. From then on, readers will see The Little Red Riding Hood, the 7 Kids, the Lying Shepherd… but still no sign of the Bad Wolf.
Any idea where he might be? Watch your back. The Bad Wolf is closer than you think!
