Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The Big Bad Wolf receives a lesson in manners in this hilarious fractured fairy tale that begins with a trip to the mailbox. While sorting through bills (including a rental fee for "sheep's clothing"), B. B. Wolf finds an invitation to the local library's storybook tea. Uncertain about attending, Wolf consults a crocodile friend, who points out the pros of the party (cookies) and the cons: "You'll have to behave yourself." An etiquette book provides tips, and Wolf sets off on the big day, armed with a list of reminders ("Sip your tea and never slurp. Say 'Excuse Me' if you Burp"). Kids will delight in the ensuing slapstick humor and the references to familiar stories—party guests include Little Red Riding Hood and the Little Engine That Could. Seibold's wild, skillful computer-generated art is filled with jokes and details that will invite repeated viewings. This sly, upended portrait of a storybook villain will pair well with Jon Scieszka's classic The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs (1989). Engberg, Gillian

Judy Sierra's MIND YOUR MANNERS, B.B. WOLF receives Jotto Seibold's whimsical and fun drawings as it tells of B.B. Wolf, formerly known as Big Bad, who sets off from his senior citizens home to attend the local library's yearly storybook tea. He wants cookies - but three cartoon characters have also been invited, and vie for the food in this hilarious story of a bad wolf gone good.

The Big Bad Wolf ("B.B.", to his friends) is an old guy nowadays... His glory days chasing little kids through the forest and blowing down the little pigs' houses are long in the past and now he lives in a retirement home. The most huffing and puffing he does is when he walks outside to check the mailbox. One day, though, he gets an invitation in the mail, to a tea party at the local library, and B.B. gets quite anxious -- having been a such a meanie when he was young, he was never invited to parties before, and now he's worried that he won't know how to behave. A friend gives him a pep talk and loans him an etiquette book to study Armed with the information that you should say "excuse me" if you burp, and that you shouldn't eat the other guests, B.B. goes off to try and socialize. He does quite well, as it turns out, and the cheerful librarian invites him back sometime to tell *his* side of all those old fairy tales. It's a simple, charming story -- I'm not wild about J. Otto Siebold's chaotic artwork, but there are a lot of funny details to comment on, and my kid got a kick out of it as well. Plus, the action takes place in a library... what more could you want?

I have many books in my Grandma Bag, which I carry with me when I visit the grandangels. But this is one of our favorites, by far. My grandson much prefers it to those "icky" princess and fairy books, and the granddaughters giggle and go around reciting the rhymes. The illustrations are fun (Yes, even for grownups who "get" some stuff that goes over the kids' heads.) And the message is meaningful without being preachy. It's a great book for parents to take to school on Mystery Reader Day, too. Highly recommended.

Run, run as fast as you can!
And buy this book.
Really, it's 100% genius.
And the visuals by J.Otto?
That man draws on something behind him with his eyes closed
and the universe makes changes for the better.
Get it!

What an enjoyable children's book my son fell in love with the story and illustrations instantly. Judy Sierra has done a great job into turning the fairytale issues encountered by the big bad wolf into a lovely adaptation of yet another children's fable. This story is being constantly reread to my child so much that he can repeat it by sight alone. This story you have to let yourself go because the wolf sings to remind himself of what he must do to fit in. You and your child will love the revised version of this story.

This book is fantastic. I'll admit my daughter is not quite three, but she loves this book with a passion and requests it many times a day (we probably both have it memorized). It is fairly low on text-picture ratio (one of the reasons it is good for a young child, and also why I don't mind reading it so often) and the pictures are captivating.

There are so many little pictorial jokes sprinkled throughout the book, so for a parent (or older child) there is some subtler humor to enjoy as you read. The wolf is endearing in his orange plaid suit as he heads off to his first tea-party twirling his cane and singing a little song to help him remember his manners. I've made up my own tune and my daughter LOVES the little song - we sing it even when we are not reading the book.

This is a book along the same lines as "Do Unto Otters: A Book About Manners", which I believe Seibold also illustrated, and which was also a big hit in my household. I doubt you will be disappointed in this adorable, funny, captivating book, whether you are a toddler or an adult or anyone in between who just loves children's literature.

This is an adorable book for a child who loves fairy tales and is especially cute for little girls who love tea parties. B.B. Wolf is headed to a tea party at the library where he will meet various storybook characters, and he makes up a few songs to remind him of the proper tea party etiquette. The text flows nicely, and my little girl asks to hear it again and again. I was hoping for a book that would reinforce concepts like saying "please" and "thank you" and "you're welcome," but it's really not that kind of book for teaching manenrs. The main concept it discusses is the importance of not "slurping" one's tea and saying "excuse me." Still a cute story, but if you want to teach manners, perhaps another book is a better bet.
