Summary
Wally and Willy are on the lam again. But as Willimina and Wallanda, they're free and clear . . . or are they? These cleverly disguised wolves think they can fool an entire flock with their womanly wool-wear, but three savvy sheep expose their plan. It looks like another close shave for these baa-aad boys!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "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. --GraceAnne DeCandido Copyright 2003 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Two wolves "go on the lam," dressing as sheep and infiltrating a flock. "Palatini's flair for puns and arch repartee shines through every exchange," said PW's starred review. "The ever-waggish Cole advances the plot with his own steady stream of visual humor." Ages 4-7.
