Lift the flaps and save the reputation of notorious animals!
-Once upon a time there was a very ferocious bad wolf…
-Hey! Wait a minute, wait a minute….
And so begins this book… Two girls chatting and challenging the myth of the Bad Wolf, put off by folklore and fairy tales.
There are many animals that have a bad name. And the purpose of Bel Olid is to clear their names with facts and figures.
Throughout the conversation, the reader will be able to lift the flaps and find out the truth behind wolves, sharks, spiders, horses and crocodiles.
Accompanied by the amazing illustrations of Naida Mazzenga, children realize to which extent the image we have of them is misleading and why they are so important to us and to their habitats.
Don’t be afraid of lifting the flaps. They are not as bad as they say!
