The boy happily bikes home to his mother, wher When a hungry wolf meets a young boy he knows exactly what he wants for supper! Soon the greedy wolf is running round trying to find all the ingredients – with hilarious results. This book can also be linked to Literacy; the children can create a recipe to use instructional language and use the recipes in the book as example.

Upon returning to his cave and the boy, the boy tells the wolf that he has forgotten the salt, an ingredient that was never mentioned.

This very humorous book is about a young boy who gets captured by a ‘big, bad’, hungry wolf as he walks through the forest. It can also be used in a guided reading session, given that there are quite a few repetition words involved. The boy cleverly manages to trick the wolf into not eating him by suggesting new and exciting recipes for the wolf to try. This can be used to build a description on the wolf which can be used to demonstrate the story to the children.

boyss For the visual learners in the class this book will be enthralling as the pictures are wonderfully presented. Not only has his dinner arrived but bos boy himself suggests the most mouth-wateringly, tasty recipe the wolf has ever heard. But Beware of boys by Tony Blundell This book is hilarious and very engaging. This book could be voys between both Key Stages 1 and 2; in Key Stage 1 it would be beneficial for the children if this book is read to the children by an adult due to some of the sayings, puns and language, this will ensure that the children will be able to identify that the text has a variety of language styles and could help them comprehend them.


The story uses the conventions of a fairy tale with a twist, in that it all ends on a ‘happily ever after’ note and uses key concepts such as repetition. I particularly enjoyed reading the recipes for each dish and wondering why some none cooking ingredients were required.

It would be a good book to read for reception and KS1 to the whole class. This can be used several ways in the classroom, as part of independent reading, or used as part of guided reading to develop comprehension.

For example, if other, familiar fairy tale characters were put in this story, how might they react differently and how might the blundel, change or develop differently.

The wolf collects all the ingredients for boy pie but once again he forgets the salt. It can also link to maths, looking at different types of measurement and how much of each. The book reinforces prior knowledge of books with similar characters to the wolf from previous books children have read.

They will like the fact that the young boy is clever and able to mock the wolf. The story ends with the wolf locked in his own cave by the cunning boy.

Different styles of punctuation, such blunsell ellipses, boyd also used in the story, which the teacher can point out to the pupils.

I think for guided reading purposes as well as whole class reading, this book would be highly recommended, however I think in the guided reading context, it would be best suited to high-reading ability year 2 pupils to low-reading ability year 4 pupils.

As expected, the wolf returns to the boy only to discover that he has forgotten the salt. Oct 10, Aaron Campling rated it really liked it.
