Grooming for food not sex!

The illustrations in this book are superlative, and the idea of the story - a wolf becoming the penpal of a 'delicious' little lamb in order to eat him all up - is also excellent. The illustrations never let you down, but the story doesn't quite work mostly because it gets all pc about little ones not having friends that mummy doesn't approve of.

I get really fed-up with the pc element of modern children's books. I grew up on Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Winnie-t

Little Lamb gets a letter from someone who says he wants to be his friend. How exciting! So Little Lamb writes back, and a pen pal-type friendship is formed.

Oh boy! Umm...Wolfgang has a pretty cool name, but man, he's such a creeper! He watches the little lamb out of a telescope and writes letters to it. They become 'friends' and Wolfgang wants to meet up with (EAT) the little lamb. Fortunately, the parents get Little Lamb out of the country as fast as possible. =) Seriously though, that's creepy---wolves these days >_>

Neither my 4-year-old nor myself liked this book. I think there were too many words/sentences to keep my child's attention, especially since there wasn't a great storyline.
