Summary
Get to know the softer side of your favorite fairy tale baddies as they return home from a full day of scheming to enjoy a yummy dinner together and help one another get ready for bed.

Wolves, today was not so good.
You didn't catch Red Riding Hood.
You huffed and puffed without success.
But brush your fangs, please, nonetheless.

Wicked witches. Evil queens. And big, bad wolves. By day they're such baddies! But cozy at night at home among friends? Why, they couldn't be nicer! Inspired by the mischief-makers from classic folk and fairy tales, this picture book shows that even the baddest baddies can have big hearts.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "They might be baddies by day, but by evening, all the familiar villains (witches, wolves, giants, dragons, trolls, and so on) who make fairy tales so exciting shed their evil ways: All day long they must be vile; / now, at night, they chat and smile. They politely share dinner, take turns in soothing bubble baths, tell gentle stories by firelight, check under their beds, read a book or two, and soon enough drift off to a baddie lullaby with the next day's evil schemes but a dream away. For young readers, the lightly lilting, humorous four-line verses on each double-page spread should be a gentle beacon toward slumber land, too. Underwood and Kangas are a delightfully subversive team, proving even the meanest baddies need time to relax and recharge. Showing the cooperative, thoughtful side of the most mythic meanies is also a clever reminder even to jaded adults to look well beyond others' exteriors and reputations, and discover the nice guys waiting underneath.--Hong, Terry Copyright 2016 Booklist"
