Once upon a time, there was a wolf called Rolf – a good little wolf who liked baking cakes and was always kind to his friends. But real wolves aren’t supposed to be good – they’re supposed to be BIG and BAD.

Can a good little wolf still be a real wolf?

And will Rolf discover there’s something big and bad lurking inside him after all?

Teaching Ideas and Resources:


  • Think of different ways that stories start… ‘Let’s begin…’, ‘Once upon a time…’. Can you think of any more? Could the class make a display to share ideas for starting stories?
  • Write a recipe for a cake that Little Wolf might like to bake.
  • Describe the Big Bad Wolf…
  • Look at the illustration which shows when Little Wolf meets the Big Bad Wolf. What might the characters be feeling when they first meet?
  • Think of synonyms for Little, Big and Bad.
  • Retell the story from the Big Bad Wolf’s point of view.
  • Retell the story from Mrs. Boggin’s point of view.
  • Write a new ending for the story.
  • Investigate other stories which feature a Big Bad Wolf. Watch this cartoon and compare the wolves in each story:


  • Explore the measurements that Little Wolf might have to make for his cake recipes.


  • Could you draw some pictures of a good little wolf and a bad little wolf?


  • Think of other good things that we can do, just like Little Wolf.
  • The Big Bad Wolf tries to encourage Little Wolf to do bad things. How should we behave when a friend tries to get us to do something that we know is wrong. Explore the concept of peer pressure, if appropriate.
