Author(s): Finbar O'Connor
A sequel to the story of Little Red Riding Hood, Wolfgran is a wonderfully irreverent take on the world of fairy tales. Granny has sold her house to the three little pigs and moved into the Happy-Ever-After Home for Retirement Characters from Fairy Tales. But the Big Bad Wolf is still on her trall! Disguised as a little old lady, the Wolf is causing mayhem as he prowls the city streets, swallowing anybody who gets in his way, including several very polite policemen. Hot on his case are chief Inspector Plonker, who thinks he has a werewolf on his hands, Sergeant Snoop, who has to melt down his darts trophy to make silver bullets, and a very clever little girl guide in a red hood. But will they get to the wolf before he gets Granny? And who will let all those little old ladies out of their cells in time for bingo?
