The Three Little Pigs was written by Bernadette Watts. It is about the three little pigs who were sent to seek their fortunes by their poor, widow mother. Each of them would meet a guy who is willing to bring them something that they can build with. At the end, all three of them and the mother share a home together and lived happily ever.

This book is very modern and classic. What make it unique is that they included a mother in this story. She was poor and widow. She wanted her sons to seek thei
This is a good take on the old classic. The only thing I thought was weird... is why does the wolf wait overnite to climb up to the chimney of the house? I read this in 6 different storytimes and I did have a few kids, even, question that one particular aspect of the story. But, overall, a definite good story for storytime. Good pictures, and it's safe if you happen to have parents/caregivers who don't like when animals die, as all the pigs live happily ever after.

Any person who happens to read this book will love the soft, water-color illustrations. This story is one of my favorites, for whatever reason. I think I get humored when the pigs get their houses blown down by the wolf and going running for their lives but the ending, in this book, is a happy one where all #3 pigs and their mommy, live happily ever after.


I would use flannel cut outs of the #3 houses, the #3 pigs and wolf and re-tell the story, with the help of the children
A gentler retelling in which (spoiler alert) no one gets eaten. Lovely illustrations, and a good length for storytimes.

This story is a funny classical retell for those who prefer non violent fairytales. No pigs were eaten and the wolf isn't burned in the end. This story has a very happy ending in it where the three little pigs and their mom all live together in the house that was made of bricks. The pictures in this book are very captivating as well and it's great for young readers.

This is a beautiful version of the three little pigs. It is suitable for younger readers, with illustrations on the cute and adorable side, and a text that has a happy ending of all three little pigs and mommy pig living in the brick house.

Watt's twist on the tale is that no pigs are eaten and the wolf does not get burned by the fire. For me the pictures weren't captivating.

this is for ann and the new school, great illustrations and not text dense, easy to read and has a soft ending....

This is a great version of the classic tale for those who prefer non-violent retelling of fairytales.
