They were bad. Oh yes, those boys were real bad.
On the run again, wolves Willy and Wally have the perfect plan.
Cleverly disguised in womanly wool-wear, they slip into the sheep flock -- a hide-out "on the lam." A foolproof plan indeed . . . especially for securing a lamb chop or two. But when those bad boys -- rather, Willimina and Wallanda -- meet their match in the form of three savvy sheep, the truth is only a close shave away.
Margie Palatini and Henry Cole, the team behind the hilarious moosetache and mooseltoe, have created a madcap fairy-tale read-aloud sure to entertain young readers.

K-Gr. 2. On the run from a kid in a red hooded cape and three small pigs, Willy and Wally, a couple of wolf brothers, decide to disguise themselves as sheep and hide out, as it were, in the middle of lunch--a flock of sheep. Dressed in woolly garb (and house dresses and purses, just like Trudie Ewe and Meryl Sheep), they conduct a very silly dialogue with the flock, who see through their flimsy disguise almost immediately. The bad boys get shorn, and in the last spread, children see them in their skivvies trying to knit warmer coats for themselves. The exaggerated matronly airs of the sheep seem a little dated, and some of the jokes may be aimed more toward adults than the kids, but there's plenty for the target audience, too, especially in the cartoon-style artwork that gathers up every bit of the humor, capitalizing on the wolves in drag.
