Tell the Truth, B.B. Wolf

by Judy Sierra
Illustrated by J. Otto Seibold

One Potato Review

B.B. Wolf finally comes clean – and picks up some new middle names (Bodacious, Benevolent, Bookish) along the way. Seibold fills the edges of these pages with his usual mischief – witness Rumpelstilskin sloppily hammering on Fix-It-Up day at the Villain Villa – but the wonder is always the earnest expressiveness of his leading man: defensive, embarrassed, contrite, and finally determined to make things right. A lot of illustrators wring comedy from alternative fairy tales characters; Seibold makes his sympathetic.
