What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Practice makes perfect in this kick-butt fractured fairy tale.

Why does this wolf think he can come to town and blow all the houses down? These three little pigs just aren’t going to take it from that bully anymore! The first starts aikido lessons—he’ll make mincemeat out of that wolf! His brother learns a little jujitsu–he’ll chop that guy to pieces!

But when the wolf actually appears, it turs out these two pigs aren’t quite ready after all. Good thing their sister has been training every day to master some serious karate moves that save the day. KIYA!

Corey Rosen Schwartz serves up a fun combination of smart-aleck dialogue and tongue-in-cheek rhymes that’ll have kids howling, and rising star Dan Santat’s spunky illustrations are sure to pack a punch!

What Kind of Book is The Three Ninja Pigs

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Human Development Degree, Book-loving aunt

These ninja pigs each prepare a different amount, and wolf #3 is the only one who completed all of her training and is able to stop the wolf. A fun take on the story of the three little pigs, this book does use slang language like “yo” and says “butt.” When the two brother pigs see their sister defeat the wolf, they decide to go back to school and finish their training, leaving a good message of completing what they started and finishing school.
