Description: Wolves, with their great flashing teeth and wily ways, always add a frisson of excitement to the best fairy stories and old tales. In these three classics, Emma Chichester Clark's hairy beasts live up to all our expectations as they try to fool Little Red Riding Hood; almost catch a greedy little girl who cannot resist sticky doughnuts; and gobble up Berta Goat's kids (except one). But however much he may plot and scheme, Mr. Wolf always gets his comeuppance in the end.
Wonderfully evocative (and mostly humorous!) full-page illustrations with superimposed text throughout. Clever use of different typefaces creates a dynamic effect.
Excellent, unmarked condition throughout.
