Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

Smith's highly imaginative watercolors eschew realism....Designed with uncommon flair, this alternative fable is both fetching and glib." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"It's the type of book that older kids (and adults) will find very funny." School Library Journal

Review:

"Smith's simplistic and wacky illustrations add to the effectiveness of this fractured fairy tale." Childrens' Literature

Synopsis:

Practice makes perfect in this kick-butt fractured fairy tale

Why do wolves think they 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!

Synopsis:

Practice makes perfect in this kick-butt fractured fairy tale

When the big bad wolf threatens their village, three pigs sign up for different martial arts lessons to prepare to take him down. Pig One and Pig Two don't stick with their training, though, and are no match for their foe. But after practice and dedication, Pig Three becomes great at karate (including perfecting the perfect pork chop!) and saves the day.

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!

This book is an excellent way to demonstrate there is always another side to any story. As English an teacher, and as a parent, we often think there is a right way and a wrong way to do or believe certain things. The reality is that unless you know all aspects of a situation, there may be circumstances that are unknown. This book just gives a different twist to an old story, but it can open up a new way of thinking.
