Silly Goose's BIG Story by Keiko Kasza

I am a big fan of Keiko Kasza's books!  This one is no exception.  Silly Goose is known among his animal friends as being a great storyteller.  From pirates to dinosaurs to kings, Goose's stories are always entertaining.  But the animal friends are not so happy when every story the hero is played by Goose.  One day a BIG SCARY wolf shows up and the animals all take off running.  All the animals are able to escape except Goose.  Goose uses his great storytelling skills to try to convince the wolf that a WEM, Wolf-Eating Monster, lurks in the forest.  As Goose tells the story, something.....perhaps WEM, appears behind a bush....or does it?  Great book for middle elementary kids that will appreciate how the wolf is tricked.  Great lesson on being a friend.
