Rated 5 out of 5 by from We loved it... My young kids and I found this book hilarious!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Aesop's fable I ordered this book sight unseen based on the title, expecting Aesop's fable, for my four year old. I returned it to Chapters after I receiving it. This book would have given my daughter nighmares. The story is about a boy who lived beside a mountain. On the other side lived a wolf. The wolf would occasionally go over the mountain and eat people. The boy often cried ``wolf'' to get out of things he didn't want to do, (bathtime, violin lesson) or for fun. Eventually no one believed him. Then the wolf comes over, eats the adults first then eats the boy. The moral of the story, is ``C'est la vie. ''
