This book is 6 x 8½ and has 24 pages. The illustrations were created digitally. The story is well told. Text and illustrations make for a lively telling of the fable. The eyes and face of the wolf are particularly well done. I wrote of the Spanish version that It is a pity that he does not appear on the cover. But he does! He had fooled me! The cover reproduces 12-13 but adds an eye on the shepherd's otherwise blank face. This shepherd watches the sheep enter the fold but notices nothing unusual. Just when the wolf is closed into the pen and wondering which sheep to eat first, the shepherd returns, saying I need something for my dinner (20). Only after he slaughters one of the sheep does he see that this sheep was a wolf. Then he thinks It is dangerous to pretend to be something you are not (24). All of the books in this series have a reinforced library binding.
