Written in 1955 by English author Catherine Storr, "CleverPollyAndTheStupidWolf" is a collection of short children's stories focusing on the adventures of [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a bright young girl named Polly and a dim-witted wolf with his heart set on eating her.]] Most of the stories follow a similar formula: The Wolf, inspired by a fairy story or folk tale, will hatch an overly complicated plan to catch Polly. Inevitably, Polly will already be familiar with the story and foil The Wolf's plan [[RealityEnsues through the use of logic]] and by reminding him [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall that they don't live in a storybook.]]
