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.

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.
