The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs/!La Verdadera Historia de Los Tres Cerditos!by Jon Scieszka
Synopses & Reviews
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!
One of the most popular books of the decade is back with a brand new Introduction, as Alexander T. Wolf adds another chapter to his story--a perspective looking back on his ten long years in the pen! Full color.
For the first time, the book that launched the careers of Scieszka and Smith is now available in a bilingual flip-over book--a rendering of the famous story as it has never been heard before. Full color.
