The illustration style in this version of the fairytale is wild. Twisted. Fractured, even. The curlequed claws of the wolf bring to mind the animated film “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and other hip, creepy images. However, the tale that is told is very traditional. The pigs leave their mother, build their houses, are pursued by the wolf, and defeat him with a pot of boiling water at the bottom of the chimney. The only variation entails the third little pig standing up the wolf for a series o ...more

Text-to-self: Recently someone stole my iPhone. I have realized that sometimes people will try and put a dent in your life, but its all about the attitude. The last little pig had a secure place to stay and then he fought against evil. I feel like that is the same in the situation I am in currently.

Text-to-text: This reminds me of Goldilocks and the three bears. She breaks into their homes and takes something from them. They also both have good endings and in the end no one is harmed. Also in bo

This graphic novel is label reading level 1, though I do say it is a but harder than that but nevertheless my son had no problems reading this out loud to me. The story keeps true to the traditional tale we are all familiar with with no watering down and tiny little twist at the end that is very clever. The illustrations are wonderful and creepy. You honestly have to give this book a read once you've had a look at the illustrations. Ds looked forward to reading it everyday. We have another in th ...more

This is a highly appealing, graphic novel version of The Three Little Pigs. Students who saw the cover were intrigued by the wild stylization of the pigs and wolf illustrations. The tale was close to the traditional version with a welcomed twist at the end. There is a glossary with an appropriate selection of words,history of the story, discussion questions, writing prmopts and internet supplements that are all of high quality. This series is also available in Spanish.

This edgy version of the classic three little pigs story is a wonderful contribution to a compare and contrast lesson. The story follows the same plot so provides similarities, but these drawings make the wolf and pigs look slightly deranged and appeals to older elementary readers. It provides a good example of graphic novel conventions with onomatopoeia, thought/dialogue bubbles and narration.
Reading Equivalent = 2.0, however I feel the graphics make it more appropriate to grades 3-5

This is a great graphic novel for readers that want to graduate from Picture Book level. The illustrations are done in a spooky style that will appeal to "older" readers. It's done in a preteen look, but still follows the story of the Three Pigs. A great addition to your graphic novel library.
Kaiti and I thoroughly enjoyed it...kinda creepy. The illustration on the cover took some explanation for her...two huge, hairy 'arms' of the wolf, reaching with clutching claws for the three brothers.
These pigs are really ugly.
Creepy artwork that I loved. The little little ones might find it a bit too creepy? Same old pigs, but the artwork made it special. Nonetheless, both my six-year- old and I enjoyed it.
Happy endings should always be like this one.

Not much to say about this one. It was cute and the pictures were fun, but it was a pretty straight telling of the 3 little pigs. It did have a little bit of a cliff hanger at the end.

I agree with other reviewers that the illustrations of this simple story are creepy but it brings a fresh perspective and a bit of fun.

Typical 3 Little Pigs but it was still cute.
I found the illustrations funny, made an old well-told tale new again.
