Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Three little pigs set out to seek their fortune. Each pig builds himself a house: one of straw, one of sticks, and one of bricks. When a hungry wolf huffs, and puffs, and blows in the houses of two little pigs, the third pig realizes that he needs more than a sturdy house of bricks to drive the wolf away.  This classic battle of wits, dramatically and charmingly illustrated by Paul Galdone, is an elegant addition to any folk tale collection.

Synopsis:

Nursery Rhymes are a traditional part of early childhood. This beautifully illustrated book is filled with well loved rhymes cherished by generations including One Two Buckle My Shoe, Three Blind Mice and Little Miss Muffet. This book is enhanced by special touches such as the flocking and embossing on the cover and pages and also features charming illustrations distinguish the entire collection.

About the Author

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1914 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.
