Traditional tale of three little pigs and wolf with humor added in the illustrations. Wolf is seen wearing shades and listening to a Walkman. Houses of pigs have more detail than just, straw, sticks and bricks. Wolf is outsmarted as usual.

Illustrations seem to be watercolor with ink detailing. No source notes as to where and when he found story.

-Totally misses the point about laziness not paying off
-Idealizes getting what you want by tricking people

Traditional, with a more clever ending for the smartest pig as he outwits the wolf. Great illustrations.
