Inside the Villains

  • Interest Level: Kindergarten - Grade 3   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

Everyone will want to get their hands on this book to lift the flaps, peek in pockets, and reveal all of these fairy-tale villains’ secrets! For a twist on well-known tales, the giant, the wolf, and the witch each have their own interactive flaps, hiding spots, and a personality card. Dig into this book to see the diabolical thoughts inside the villains’ heads, what lurks beneath their disguises, or the victims of their last meals (now comfortably settled inside their stomachs!).
Personality cards show strengths and weaknesses, pastimes, physical characteristics, favorite meals and—of course—their favorite books.
And if the wolf bites your fingers while you’re reading, you can always pull his tail…
