inside villainsInside the Villains by Clotilde Perrin. Pub. Gecko Press, 2018.

This is a big big book with three of the big, big, biggest villains in children’s literature. Yes they are the Wolf, the Giant and the witch.

Each has a whole page spread in which you have a big interactive flap model of each of the Villains. For the Wolf you can see what is inside his stomach, see if you can guess what is in there. There is also a self written profile of the Wolf his likes, dislikes and qualities. He sees himself as cunning, highly intelligent with a like of children, pigs, grandmothers and baby goats. What a monster!! There is also the story of The Wolf and the Seven little goats.

The Giant is profiled similarly and he hates vegetables, he has big feet, enormous hands but he is ugly. And we get his best known story Jack and the Beanstalk. Check what is under his jacket after you take off his belt.

I am not going to tell you about the Witch you can find out for yourself.

Superb for juniors to play with and get to know the beauty of a book, believe me they need to know.
