A lovely little book, printed as well as told and illustrated by Cunningham. This miniature book is a good example of strategic repetition and variation. It looks like the same illustration is used for all three pages of the boy crying Wolf! Wolf! Wolf! The three reactions of the people, on the other hand, are nicely varied: The people were very angry. The people were much more angry. But nobody came. The moral here is delightful: When the shepherd is foolish, the clever wolf dines on lamb chops. There are at least four colors involved. A little treasure!
