You thought you knew the story of the “The Three Little Pigs”… You thought wrong.
In this hysterical and clever fracture fairy tale picture book that twists point of view and perspective, young readers will finally hear the other side of the story of “The Three Little Pigs.”
“In this humorous story, Alexander T. Wolf tells his own outlandish version of what really happens during his encounter with the three pigs…. Smith’s simplistic and wacky illustrations add to the effectiveness of this fractured fairy tale.” —Children’s Literature
“Older kids (and adults) will find very funny.” —School Library Journal
The wolf in this story is pretty convincing of his side of things :) It is always fun when these traditional tales are retold. The wolf introduces himself with a real name and as we get to know him in the first couple of pages he seems like he has a pretty good character. He doesn’t seem big and bad at all. By the end of the story we see that he has ended up with a punishment that he might not see fair, which is why he has written this tale. You can be the judge, was he innocent?
