Growl: The True Story of the Big Bad Wolf


Book and Lyrics by Timothy Knapman

Music and Lyrics by Laurence Mark Wythe 

Mister Wolf is the loving heart of the community that lives in the great forest.  But one day, Chip P McWoodcutter shows up wanting to cut down the forest and build a city in its place.  Mister Wolf is on to her but Chip is a smart cookie and pretty soon she has everyone believing a whole lot of terrible things about him.  To protect the world he loves, the peaceful Wolf is going to have to get back to being Big and Bad!
