Publisher Comments:

Big Bad Wolf’s first visit to his local library (as related in Mind Your Manners, B.B. Wolf) was such a success that he returns to tell his version of “The Three Little Pigs.” His outrageous spin on the tale draws skeptical remarks from his audience: “Isn’t that wolf’s nose getting longer?” asks Pinocchio. “It’s a cooked-up, half-baked tale,” snaps the Gingerbread Boy. And “Tell the truth, B.B. Wolf!” squeal the Three Little Pigs. Caught in his own lie, B.B. explains that he is a reformed villain: “Now I’m begging on my knees, Little Pigs, forgive me, please!” How B.B. turns his bad old deed into a good new one provides a happy ending to this fun-to-read fractured fairytale.

Review:

"Tracksuit-wearing B.B. Wolf makes a return to a trip to the library in this companion to Mind Your Manners, B.B. Wolf, this time to relate a story from his bad old days--that of the three little pigs. Embarrassed about his past actions, he engages in some revisionist history ('I followed my nose and found another little piggie playing with matches next to a pile of sticks. The sticks were on fire, so I blew on them... to put out the flames, you understand'), causing the fairy tale characters in attendance to insist he come clean. As delightfully twisted as its predecessor. Ages 5 — 8. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

About the Author

Judy Sierra, who holds a Ph.D. in folklore, puts a hilarious new spin on some of the most familiar storybook characters in her two books starring B.B. Wolf. She is the author of other highly acclaimed picture books such as Wild About Books, a New York Times #1 Bestseller, Born to Read, and The Sleepy Little Alphabet.

J. Otto Seibold was one of the first children’s book illustrators to master the art of drawing on a computer with his Mr. Lunch books and the Christmas bestseller Olive, the Other Reindeer. His retired and reformed Big Bad Wolf, first seen in Mind Your Manners, B.B. Wolf, is winning him legions of new fans.
