You could use this in a first or second grade classroom and have an anchor chart with character, setting, problem and solution sections for the students to fill out. You could also do a text-to-self activity sheet for the students to do that has at the stop "If I Were a Wild Thing, I Would Look Like This...", then at the bottom "A wild thing I would do: ________"
