Rated 5 out of 5★ by 4reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Childhood favorite!! There is always more than one side to any story. This is a comical version from the wolfs side of the story. The poor wolf in the story was just asking for a cup of sugar when his cold sends him sneezing. If you appreciate a little comedy in an old classic this is for you! 03/22/2014
