dc.description.abstractHere is a second copy I bought at the same time as the first. This is a bigger version of the book Ross first did in 1985. My copy comes from 1981. Not only the size, the publisher, and the place of printing have changed. But the feature character, Willy there, has now become Harry! Perhaps the change has come because Willy is used in frequent sexual contexts, not least of all in the humorous books featuring Wicked Willy. As I mention in my comments on the original publication, Ross continues to be a wonderful storyteller and illustrator. The wolf put salt on a man whom he was chasing. Willy yelled Wolf whenever he had to do something he did not want to do, like take a bath. The mice and bugs danced to the kind of music Willy liked after he had driven off his music teacher by yelling Wolf. Willy here was riding his bicycle when he met the wolf. The wolf caught Willy and was ready to eat him when the adults said You shouldn't have told so many lies! The wolf ate the adults instead! And then...another surprise!en_US
