Abstract
Through an oversight, I bought a new set of ABCMouse books replicating the earlier series published in 2012 and 2013. Like the other four books in this series, this book has seen slight changes in its 2016 printing, apparently the third printing. Four pages are added at the end of the book, two pages of advertisements including awards and two of vowel sounds. The early bibliographical information now includes “10% recycled paper” but the title-page has dropped reference to free apps. The book still apparently numbers the front cover as Page 1. As I wrote of the first edition,in this version, the boy tries his trick again the next day and another time a few days later. The story is traditional. The author pauses to teach readers that they should never yell for help when they do not need it. Two illustrations stand out. The first confronts a reader on the first page: the boy laughs deliriously pounding his fist on the ground. The illustrator enjoys drawing lines of motion for an action like that of the boy's arm as he pounds the ground. This first illustration turns out to be a detail from the larger two-page spread on 12-13. The other dramatic illustration follows immediately: a large, toothy black wolf terrorizes the boy and the herd (14-15). The wolf carries several sheep in each arm as he moves off triumphant and unopposed. There are two pages of glossary at the back of this very sturdy book.
