The True Story of the 3 Little Pigsby Jon Scieszka
Synopses & Reviews
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.
Smith's highly imaginative watercolors eschew realism....Designed with uncommon flair, this alternative fable is both fetching and glib." Publishers Weekly
"It's the type of book that older kids (and adults) will find very funny." School Library Journal
"Smith's simplistic and wacky illustrations add to the effectiveness of this fractured fairy tale." Childrens' Literature
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.”
Older kids (and adults) will find very funny.”
—School Library Journal
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!
