Inside the Villains


‘Inside the Villains‘- if you dare! Three dastardly characters lie waiting to reveal themselves. The Wolf, The Giant and The Witch introduce themselves, declaring their attributes proudly. The Wolf describes his ‘highly developed intelligence, natural cunning, exceptional athletic gifts…’

Each character offers a checklist of strengths, before we turn to a feature character ‘full reveal’. It’s time to take a deep breath! With levers and pulleys, springs and folds, we investigate the innermost workings of each of our villains.

Every character is included in a traditional story.  The Giant is centre stage in ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, while The Wolf and The Witch feature in two less familiar traditional stories.

‘Inside the Villains‘ is a magnificent feat. As a former teacher, I see its huge learning potential. It offers opportunity to me as a reader, to love, share, learn and imagine, reread and own a uniquel book.

Inside the Villains

Clotilde Perrin

(Gecko Press)– hardback, A2 sized

Meet three traditional story baddies in Inside the Villains as you’ve never met them before! Who is The Wolf really? What makes The Giant tick? Is The Witch as evil as fairytales would have us believe? Thereafter, do we dare step within, venturing ever deeper to realise the truth behind the baddies from traditional tales?
It seems that there are depths and intrigues to these three characters such as we could never imagine! A unique personality card, rather like a Top Trumps’ grade sheet, offers information about each more. What’s more, Clotilde Perrin seems to have imbued each with s three- dimensional substance!
As with her superb Inside the Suitcase, this picture book maker offers a book of wonder and discovery.  It means that as we tread Inside the Villains‘ we learn familiar characters’ innermost thoughts and hidden feelings. What’s more, we have the opportunity to explore even further, such as behind their ears, inside their pockets, or even to learn their last meal…
Then again, the paper crafting and intricate detail are luscious in their detail and intricacy. It means that reading this book is a truly immersive experience. Bookwagon loves and recommends this outstanding story, ideal for treasuring, sharing in class, or gifting.
