The True Story of the 3 Little Pigsby Jon Scieszka
Synopses & Reviews
You thought you knew the story of the The Three Little Pigs” You thought wrong.
In this hysterical and clever 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.” This fractured fairy tale is illustrated by the Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator of The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales.
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
A contemporary classic celebrates its 25th birthday.
Twenty-five years in the Big House and A. Wolf is still sticking to his story: he was framed! As for that huffing and puffing stuff? A big lie. A. Wolf was just trying to borrow a cup of sugar to make his poor old granny a birthday cake.
Who should you believe, the pigs or the wolf? You read. You decide.
A quarter-century after publication, with over two million copies sold, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs remains as funny as irreverent as the inventive minds of Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith. Viking is celebrating this landmark anniversary with a handsome gift edition, featuring a stunning new jacket with lots of silver. And there's a surprise inside as well!
A spoof on the three little pigs story, this time told from the wolf's point of view. Lane Smith also illustrated Hallowe'en ABC which was one of The New York Times Best Illustrated Books of the Year.
