Praise for Inside the Villains:
“In delicate interactive paper flaps within a wonderfully oversize book, Perrin explores the true characters of three archetypal villains: a wolf, a giant, and a witch.”—Publishers Weekly

“Readers tantalized by the wolf’s list of strengths and flaws and a full version of “The Wolf and the Seven Little Goats” beneath the gatefold opposite can peel aside his pelt. Splendid introductions, chock-full of villainous revelations and insights both figurative and literal.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred
