Abstract
This book tells the BW story unusually well. Julian's father needs to go away for three days and offers to get Julian help tending the sheep on this his first turn at the task, but the boy says that he does not need help. On the first day, he gets bored and so he does what he thinks will bring all the people a good laugh. He is still enjoying his joke as they go away grumbling. The second day he misses his father and is lonely. So without thinking he begins to shout Help! A real wolf! Help! The villagers go away even angrier this time and tell him not to bother them again. On the third day a real wolf appears and scatters the sheep as Julian looks on helplessly. Late that day his father returns and deals sternly with Julian, who complains at first that no one came to help him. Julian apologizes to each of his neighbors. The next day he and his father are able to round up all the sheep one by one.
