Betsy Who Cried Wolf

Betsy Who Cried Wolf!
Author: Levine, Gail Carson
2002
Picture Book
Humour
Age: 4 – 8

Read Feature

Dear Gail Carson Levine,
We like Betsy who cried wolf because she saw a wolf nd cried wolf and
the farmers came running and the wolf ran away. So they thought she
didn't tell the truth. It happened two times and she had to go back to
shepherd school. The illustrations were hilariously goofy - especially
the way the sheep stood on two legs and how they talked. We thought it
was crazy, but really good. Every school should have your book.
Pen name: Book lover
City: Calgary


We think that this book was funny and very happy. We liked the part when
the wolf helped Betsy because wolves don't normally help people. We
liked when Betsy and the wolf became friends and we thought it was very
funny when the wolf danced. On the very end it was hilarious because all
the sheep were saying all the lessons of the story.

I liked this book because it was sad at first and then it became happy. Cheese Louise was having a hard time with Carrot and Corn because they kept on teasing her. They kept on saying you will never get picked. What they meant by that was that Cheese never gets picked. But that wasn’t true said a little friendly piece of popcorn. They always tease me by saying you’re too small and fat. Oh what ever said Carrot and Corn? But when a girl came to open the fridge she picked a piece of bread, lettuce and cheese. That means she picked Cheese Louise. Everyone, even the ones that were rude to her cheered.

I loved this book because they ate people food that had a tiny bit of crumbs in the wrapper from the garbage cans outside of people’s houses and in the beginning of the story they lived by the subway train and they found garbage on the floor like a piece of string and put on shiny beads and wrapper with a hole in it and tied it onto the string. This book has funny pictures in it the pictures are painted onto the pages. I liked when the children’s mom left in the Subway train and left her children at their house beside the Subway train and when she came back to their house they made her a garbage necklace and their mother gave her children a great big hug and they said if their mother ever left she would take her children with her.

Sylvester And The Magic Pebble is an interesting story. I think that it is a book that every kid should read. Sylvester is an adventurous donkey. I think that if Sylvester had a chance, he could find lots of different and cool things like secret hideouts and caves.

I really like this book because one girl named Tilly loved hunting everything. One of the things that she hunts for is five golden-wrapped chocolate money. Another thing that she found her breakfast banana in the kitchen. After that she eats it up then her dad hid her rabbit in the garage. After that she found the rabbit in the toolbox and she cuddles him up. After that her dad decided when it was bedtime to hide her rabbit in the house then she finds it right away. Then she feels very happy then she hide herself in the living room then her mom and dad looked all around for her but we cannot find her yet but then she came out the curtain and her mom and dad said here you are.
