The Bad Guys by Aaron Blabey

Mr. Wolf has a bad reputation.  None of it is his fault.  No matter what the three pigs and Little Red Riding Hood (not to mention Grandma) say, Wolf is a good guy. He just has to show the world his good guy nature.  So he forms the "Good Guys Club" and recruits Mr. Shark, Mr. Snake and Mr. Piranha as the other founding members.  Despite their unfortunate instincts to attack and eat anything that comes their way, Mr. Wolf is sure all four of them can prove their goodness to the world...they just need the right mission.
