Chicken Little and the Big Bad Wolf by Sam Wedelich

When I was small, the story of Chicken Little was one of my favourites. I remember listening to it at preschool and keeping one eye on the sky just in case it started falling!

We first meet this modern Chicken Little in Chicken Little: The Real and Totally True Tale! Chicken Little and the Big Bad Wolf is the cleverly written sequel bringing our hero back into the spotlight with messages of acceptance and trust. This isn’t your usual nervous little chick and it certainly isn’t your usual Big Bad Wolf.

Chicken Little isn’t afraid of anything, even the wolf who is terrifying the other birds. While everyone else is panicking, Chicken Little is determined to find out who the wolf really is. It turns out he’s just the victim of a bad reputation.

In the end, Chicken Little shows everyone they are better together and how important it is to give everyone a chance.

This charming alternative traditional tale is full of brilliant illustrations, hilarious speech bubbles and bucket loads of character voice! It would be wonderful as a shared class read in Year 2 & 3.

Thank you to Scholastic for this fun book!
