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 of suggested activities, and this does not change the tone of the piece at all. After the story the book includes a glossary, a history of the tale, discussion questions, and writing prompts. This adds value for use in an educational setting. Overall, this is a strong title. Eye-catching artwork and educational content combine for a valuable additional version of “The Three Little Pigs.”
