Oh this is best put under horror for 5 year olds. At least that is what it was like for me, or alternatively the advantages of a brick house. I remember deciding then and there (at the age of 5)that I would never live in another other then a brick house.

The Story of the Three Little Pigs by L. Leslie Brooke is the story of the three pigs that are sent out by their mother to seek their fortune. The first makes his house out of straw, but the big bad wolf comes and blows it down and gobbles the pig up. The second pig builds his house out of furze, but once again the wolf blows down the house and eats the pig. But when the wolf gets to the 3rd pigs house, he is unable to blow the house down because it is made of bricks. The wolf tries to trick the ...more

1. The sow could not take care of her little pigs and sends them on their own. One pigs builds a house of straw, one of sticks, and one of bricks. A wolf knocks each house down and then suffers for doing that.
2. This book is like the cumulative reading. Repetition with each pig building a house that is just a little sturdier than the other. The book also has rhyme with huff and puff.
3. I enjoyed this book because it captures childrens interest. This book is appropriate for younger kids. I would

The Story of the Three Little Pigs by L. Leslie Brooke is too short to even be rated as a short story so I will give it a short chapter rating. Nevertheless it richly deserves a mention and review as it has occupied a place in almost all children’s memories. I have often wondered if there is some moral to be gained by this story but haven’t yet been able to formulate it in to words. I came across this book by accident but closed it, upon completion, with a sense of well being (not something the ...more

Retold by L.Leslie Brooke.(1904). The story of the three little pigs. London, New York: Frederick Warne & Co. Librivox recording. Read by Dennis Sayer, Modesto, 2006. Retrieved from

The traditional story of the three little pigs is told here with excellent tone and pacing. This audio book was of good quality.

I wonder if there is any controversy regarding Librivox recordings. Does everyone follow the rules regarding content that is in the public doma

My brother and I used to love this story, we have this Disney book of fairy tales back then and we read and sing it to each other. And because I suddenly remembered him (and yes, missed him) I searched for a copy of this book and find it at Gutenberg. It's not the Disney version though, because that's the one we really liked, it's a nice story of siblings, a testament that blood is thicker than water, that brothers and sisters must help each other and care for one another through thick or thin, ...more

I loved how some of the illustrations were done in color and the others were in black and white. This really made the story interesting.

The color pictures were on pages with no text and showed what would happen in the coming pages. This would be great for doing a picture walk with students.

All I remembered about the Three Little Pigs was the Wolf threatening to blow the houses down and not being able to when reaching the home of the pig who built his house with bricks. I did not, however, remember the gruesomeness of this story with the wolf eating the first two pigs and then falling into a pot full of boiling water and being eaten by the third pig. I feel like there are probably less violent versions of this story.

I had this book read to me as a child. It has stayed with for over 40 years. I remember liking it a lot and wanting my mother to read it over and over. It's a somewhat violent rendition of the story but the illustrations help ease that piece.

The illustrations of the pigs are fantastic, they have beautiful details, and for me the best part were the illustrations
