Trivia

The Boy Who Cried Wolf is the main character from Aesop's fable of the same name, about a boy who liked to raise the alarm and pretend a wolf was coming, and who was then eaten by a wolf when he raised the alarm for real, because everyone thought it was a false alarm again.[2]

His story is discussed in Mrs. Peters' class in Alex and Conner's world at the beginning of The Wishing Spell.[3]
