Just looking at the cover, I recognized his book from when I was a kid. I have read this one before. I’m not sure when it was but I think it was one of those audio books that I can across when I was little. The pictures of this book are very “childish” looking, colored in with crayons, scribbles here and there. (Maybe a book that you can read to a little kid.) But nevertheless, they make it captivating enough for a kid to follow along with it. It’s playful enough with the giant letters, the anim ...more

-Totally classic story, nothing new, but with that long ending where the pig wins by trickery rather than by building a strong sturdy house
-No connection made about survival or hard work
-Nothing of value to teach
In this version of the three little pigs, the third pig goes above and beyond when outsmarting the wolf. He's always one step ahead of the wolf and in the end, it is not the pig who gets eaten, but the wolf (who knew?).

Delightful research for my archival research project. Always fun to read first editions and see the typed manuscripts and original art.

This folktale orginated in England. It's a story about three little pigs who each build a home and the big, bad wolf tries to get them. This book is much more graphic and different from the version I remember being told. The wolf eats the first two pigs and at the end, the last pig ends up eating the wolf. Some parents may want to check out which folktale version they are getting before they purchase it for their child, as some may not agree with it.
This is the classic Three Little Pigs story to a T.

The author doesn't skirt around the original story. Nope, in this version (just as in the original), the wolf eats the first two pigs. Well, why not? That's what wolves *do*. People eat pigs as well! And the pig ends up eating the wolf at the end. Well, why not? Fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly, and I gotta watch that big bad wolf die.

My nieces love this book. I do too :)

This is a story I have memorized. I have read it too my sister since she was 1 and played out the parts as she grew older. My mother saw this as a great story and I showed lots of skills reading it. So She put me in a 4-H reading class. I did great but lost because I was practicing too good of posture.
This version has a few extra details I'd never come across before in this old story: the wolf inviting the third pig to go to the fair and turnip-picking, all in an attempt to get him out of his brick house.

I would use this in my classroom to compare different stories of the Three Little Pigs. I would have the students compare and contrast the differences and similarites.
