The True Story of the Three Little Pigs 25th Anniversary Edition


The True Story of the Three Little Pigs 25th Anniversary Edition Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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!

About the Author

Jon Scieszka is the author of many acclaimed books for young readers, and also served as the first National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. Jon grew up in Flint, Michigan, the second of six brothers. Before publishing his first book, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, he taught elementary school. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Lane Smith's many honors include two Caldecott Honor Books and a Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators. Lane grew up in Oklahoma and California and attended Art Center in Pasadena. He and Jon Scieszka have collaborated on a number of picture books, the first of which was The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. He lives in Roxbury, Connecticut.
