SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

The main character of The Wolf’s Chicken Stew is a very hungry wolf! He has a craving for chicken stew and is pleased when he sees a chicken walk by him. He decides that this chicken will be perfect for his stew, but first, he needs to fatten her up.

The wolf brings the chicken pancakes, doughnuts, and a cake. He leaves them at her door. When the wolf decides the chicken must be fattened up, he goes to eat her.

When wolf gets to the chicken’s house, she opens the door and brings the wolf inside. She tells her chicks that the wolf brought them the food and they jump on him with joy and thank him. The wolf does not eat the chickens and instead has developed a friendship with them.
