Watch Out for Wolfgang

2.74 of 5 stars 2.74  ·  rating details  ·  19 ratings  ·  4 reviews
In a riff on the classic cautionary tale "The Three Little Pigs," Paul Carrick retells and imaginatively illustrates this story of three robot brothers. When Mother Robot finishes programming them, it’s time to send them out into the world. But she warns them to be careful of Wolfgang the Recycler. If he catches them, he’ll use their parts for his own ill-gotten gains.

All about being yourself, even as a robot... kind of a 3 little pigs adaptation... Read this book aloud way too many times, my son's favorite book. He carefully watched which books were going into storage, being given away and coming to Hong Kong, this was on the top of the Hong Kong pile.

This is a great book to motivate boys to read and or little girls who are interested in robots. This book is a "robotic" version of the three little pigs. This book also integrates science an literature together.
Robots! And the 3 Little Pigs? I'm a bit tired of the traditional story -- "Little pig, little pig, let me in!" and all that. But substitute robots instead of pigs and I liked it. Cute, amusing story.
This is a robot version of the three little pigs. Wolfgang is a recyling machine. I loved this whole story it was fun the illustrations will really attract a boys. Ages 4+
