There was once a greedy wolf. He was so greedy that every day he would eat enough food for TEN birthday parties and still be hungry for more...

A wicked and ravenous wolf is on the prowl for dinner when he spots, dun dun dun, seven young goats … left at home alone. But, fear not, whilst these kid goats may be little, they are clever, innovative and have enough downright silly tricks in hand to avoid getting eaten and maybe even … get a little (or rather big) snack themselves. Storytelling master Timothy Knapman and graphic genius Jean Jullien have come together to create a thoroughly entertaining read (and laugh)-aloud picture book version of the ancient Grimms fairy tale "The Wolf and the Seven Young Goats".
