One day the front door bell rang and Polly went to open the door. And there was a great black wolf who said he had come to eat her up. He was quite surprised when Polly said she didn't want to be eaten. 'Oh, yes,' said the wolf, 'I am going to eat you. But first tell me, what is that delicious smell?' 'Come down to the kitchen,' said Polly, 'and I will show you.' She led the wolf down to the kitchen. There on the table was a delicious looking pie. 'Have a slice?' said Polly. 'Now,' said Polly, after the third helping, 'what about me?' 'Sorry,' said the wolf, 'I'm too full of pie. I'll come back another day to deal with you.' The wolf did come back again whenever he was hungry, but Polly outwits the wolf on each and every occassion! These twelve storeis, written for the author's daughter, who was scared of the wolf under her bed, are bursting with humour, originality and charm.

When Catherine Storr’s daughter was very small, she was afraid of the wolf under her bed, so every night her mother would tell her a story in which Polly outwitted the wolf. These bedtime stories eventually became the collection Clever Polly and the Stupid Wolf, a wonderfully thrilling and reassuring series of adventures in which the clever, independent, and unstoppable Polly fools the persistent, hungry young wolf time and again. In a match much like Bugs Bunny and the Road Runner but more polite and quick-witted, Polly and the wolf develop ever-more complicated ways of turning the tables on each other as they grow older and, in Polly’s case at least, wiser. Three more collections of stories followed the original Clever Polly, all hilariously inventive variations on a much loved theme, and all of the stories are collected here for the first time.
