Description



About the Book



For those who think they know the story of the Three Little Pigs and the Big, Bad Wolf, here it is as they've never heard it before. In this highly acclaimed, laugh-out-loud collaboration between Scieszka and Smith, Alexander T. Wolf tells his side of the incident.



Book Synopsis



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

My dad used to read this to me when I was little, and I loved it! So I just had to get this for my daughter. One of our favorites! We laugh through the whole thing! Highly recommend!

My 5 year old read almost a year ago, and has been asking to read again ever since. We purchased for Christmas and laugh hysterically each time we read. It has already become one of our memorable favorites.
