This version of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” was retold by B.G. Hennessy & illustrated by Boris Kulikov.
A bored shepherd boy decides to cry to the townsfolk that a wolf is after his sheep. Everyone comes running, but alas, there are no wolves to be found. The boy has so much fun that day that he decides to do it again – this time crying that two wolves are after his sheep. Once again, the people from the town come running, and once again, there are no wolves to be found. The shepherd is no longer “the most bored boy in the world,” but how long will this entertaining trick work? A wonderful tale about the importance of honesty, retold in a timeless way, with clever illustrations, this retelling of the classic story is sure to be a hit with readers of all ages.
