At least we know Brenda is a Republican/Tory.

Brenda in the story is a wolf in sheep's clothing

Brenda throughout is a predator, which at the end the sheep have been befuddled to believe and trust this wolf. Who's aim throughout was to eat them

The book never tells you what later happens to those sheep

We can all guess

Brenda is a closet Republican or Libertarian, ready and willing to ruin (eat) one's brothers and sisters.

Not a sheep, but a cannibal then?

She would only be a cannibal if she ate other wolves.
