Interview with the Big Bad Wolf.
“It’s not easy being the bad guy. No one ever invited me to parties”
An interview by Goldilocks, our intrepid reporter from Fairytale Land
Today I met the Big Bad Wolf who now runs Paws: a restaurant he started with Luigi
the chef after giving up eating people and pigs. Here’s what he had to say...
Q: What made you become the Big Bad Wolf in the first place?
A: I was going to run a sweet shop but Humpty Dumpty beat me to it, so I thought why not?
I like growling and eating Grandmas and baby sisters and little pigs, and it’s a job.
Q: Did you ever get sad when you ate someone?
A: Yeah of course . For one thing their clothes always got stuck in my tummy and made me ill
and they always went Waaah waaah waaah! And the superheroes always chased me.
Mario and Luke Skywalker were the scariest! I ran away. Then I met my friends the Magic Unicorns who said
“We can save us all
We’ll see him beat
Mr Wolf you don’t need meat
Why not have a kinder treat?”
They magicked up Luigi, the Best Chef in Fairyland, and he has a grandma called Milly and she is so nice and
I felt so bad about eating pigs and baby sisters and grans after that.
Q: Is that why you decided to give it up and go vegetarian?
A: Yeah – that and Luigi makes the best pizza in all of Fairyland. I would eat pizza before Grandmas babies
and pigs any day – as the pigs said to me:
“Pigs taste disgusting and don’t go with bread
Why not go and eat people instead?“
And it turns out pizza and spaghetti and meatballs are even better! You should eat at Paws sometime –
two for one on ice cream all week for fairytale creatures - come on down!
Q: I will! Do you think everyone likes you now you don’t try to eat them?
A: Yes- I met Jack from the Beanstalk and his friend Bob the Monkey the other day when they came in for a waffle and they said
I wasn’t a bully anymore, and the Moon told me he is happy to switch on his light when I go by now especially if I
howl at him - not like before when he would switch off! Phew! Besides. It’s not easy being the bad guy.
No one ever invited me to parties!
Q: What advice would you give someone who wants to be a Big Bad Wolf?
A: Don’t do it. Being kind is so much better and you can come to Paws and eat Luigi’s spaghetti and meatballs
instead - it’s nom nom nom. Two for one on pasta all week! Grrr..
CREATE AND PLAY - MEATBALLS!
Here is the Meatballs Song
Can you sing it with your grown up and draw a meatball tree?
How does the meatball tree grow meatballs? Maybe you could be the Amazing Meatball monster who grows the tree!
What do you look like? Can you draw the meatball Monster?
What’s your name? Where do you live and how do you walk and talk?
HOW TO MAKE WOLFIE THE WOLF EARS
You will need:
- Some grey and white felt or suitable material
- A plastic headband
- A hot glue gun
- A pencil
- Some scissors
- A helpful adult
To craft wolf ears, ask your grownup to draw two large triangles on the grey material, and cut them out.
Now, have them cut out two smaller white triangles for the inside of the ears.
Be sure to have them leave a good 2cm of grey material at the bottom of the ears to secure them onto the headband.
Have them use hot glue to glue the white triangles onto the grey triangles.
Now, have your grown-up place the ears on the headband where desired, and curl the grey felt
at the bottom around the band itself and glue the ears on, or simply glue the card to the headband.
After they’re dry, your grown-up can give you the ears and you’re all ready to become Wolfie!
Can you walk and talk like you’re a Big Bad Wolf?
Why not go for a walk in the Fairytale forest as Wolfie and see what creatures you find –
how can you make friends with them?
Can you scare your grown-up by growling?
