The classic children's story of The Three Little Pigs has very little to do with David Wiesner's The Three Pigs picture-book story. I like this story because it is like the liberation of traditional characters trapped in classic children’s stories. The three pigs travel outside the pages of the book and found plenty of adventures out of it. My son David often says “adventures out there” and this is exactly what these three pigs did. Once they were out of their own story they travel into two other stories, they came out quickly but they made two other friends, a mighty dragon and a cat with a fiddle. The dynamic’s in how this story is told is almost metaphysical. On the other hand, children might feel connections with this story because this is how they play. They embody characters of a story they know and they mixed them with characters from another story and create their own. This picture helps the reader travel with their imagination and make them think “out of the box”. David Wiesner is so brilliant that he can afford the luxury of having a white page in the middle of the story and it still makes sense.
