Many people, myself included, keep saying that folk and fairytale retellings are pretty much over. But original approaches to these classics do continue to be published in exceptional cases. Corey Rosen Shwartz's "The Three Ninja Pigs" (qwinky-dink time) which you can find further down on this page is another prime example of this.
In this children's picture book review we look at a super fun retelling of The Boy Who Cried Wolf where I share some ideas of how the writer/illustrator might have created the book. This story also has a huge difference or twist in the story. See if you can figure it out.
Sometimes it gets disheartening making these videos and not knowing if anyone is watching or enjoying them. If you watch and enjoy them please click the Like button and share it with your mates. As much as I love doing these, they are quite a bit of work and I'm thinking of giving them up :)
