Story Synopsis:

Rutherford Wolf is a peace-loving, gentle creature who is also a vegetarian. But that doesn't keep various fairy tale characters from raising a panic because of the bad reputation wolves have in stories. As Rutherford keeps stumbling into famous children's tales - Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Pigs, and Peter and the Wolf, he is expected to be fierce and loathsome. All three stories get interwoven and Rutherford is accused of blowing down houses, eating old ladies and it looks like he might be chopped up into little pieces! Lucky for him the mis-informed people of the forest learn the true nature of the beast, and he escapes with his hide! This fast-paced farce is a delight for both young and adult audiences.
