Beware of the Storybook Wolves

Every night Herb´s mother would read him a bedtime story. Sometimes is was about a big wolf who terrified little girls and their grandmothers with his chilling growl and his big yellow teeth. You could tell from the picture that toothpaste had never been on his shopping list... Whenever his mother finished this bedtime story. Herb would say, "Don´t forget to take that book with you"... One night, just as they were finishing the wolf story, the telephone rang. In her hurry, Herb´s mother forgot all about taking the book with her.
