A boy's little sister doesn't like the way he improvises when he tells tales, in this funny and bighearted tale about what makes a story good.
October, 2020
A boy's little sister doesn't like the way he improvises when he tells tales, in this funny and bighearted tale about what makes a story good. The stories Gabe 'reads' to his little sister start out sounding familiar - a red-caped girl on her way to Grandma's house meets a wolf in the woods - but then, just in the nick of time, Sir Gabriel swoops in to save the day. His sister points out that's not how the story is supposed to go. The boy says his way is better: "Nothing bad happens in my story." But when his sister stops listening, the boy realises he needs to reconsider. Are his stories boring? Why does it seem like there's always something missing? Laura Farina's funny and empathetic tale explores why a good story is never made up of only good things. Many young children want a story to be exciting, but they don't want anything scary or bad to happen. This picture book shows how a brief period of being afraid or sad is necessary to make a story worth hearing. It makes for a great discussion starter and works well for loads of language arts applications, including writing skills, elements of a story, and fairy tales or other literary genres. With its playful humor, endearing sibling relationship and high-energy illustrations by Elina Ellis, this book also makes an entertaining read-aloud. AGES: 3 to 7 AUTHOR: Laura Farina has published two full-length poetry collections. She is the recipient of the Archibald Lampman Award, and has appeared on the longlist for both the ReLit Award and the CBC Poetry Prize. This Is the Path the Wolf Took is her first picture book. Laura lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. Elina Ellis draws both digitally and using traditional media, creating her own books and illustrating books for others. She lives in Cambridge, United Kingdom.
