Publisher Comments:

Once upon a time there were three little pigs. They lived together in an old house on top of a tall hill....along with seventy–three other little pigs.

Not even pigs can live in such crowded conditions! In Bruce Whatley's quirky version of this classic folktale, the three little pigs desperately want to escape from the mayhem and build their own little dream homes.

But wait! Was the wolf's nose just erased? Did one of the pigs turn green? And what does it all have to do with the illustrator who has run out of red paint?

Parents and children alike will adore this playful retelling, and not just because it's a spin on a popular story. Chockful of jokes and surprises, Wait! No Paint! Also encourages readers to use their imaginations and think about how books are created.

Ages 3+

Slapstick Silliness: Wait! No Paint!

It’s a bad day for the Three Little Pigs. Full of slapstick silliness and colourful character/illustrator interactions, this twist on the traditional tale tickles our two.
