Synopses & Reviews
"Three little pigs to savor, and a wolf to lord it over: from the clover-sprigged jacket to the third little pig covering the steaming pot from which the wolf's tail protrudes, this is a blithe, unbloody business with a leer on the face of the wolf that you can only laugh at.ÉNo one will want to abandon Leslie Brooke but like Galdone's Henny Penny, this animates the tale for the widest possible audience."
"All in all, a very appealing edition of a beloved story." School Library Journal
All three pigs set out to seek their fortune, but two of them come to a sorry end.
