bookshelves: fantasy, traditional

is written by Davis Wiesner. The illustrations use watercolor, colored inks, and colored pencils. The artwork and styles of the illustrations change through out the text when the stories change. The three pigs begins as the traditional is told until the wolf blows the first pig's house down. "So he huffed, and he puffed, and he blew the house in... Hey! He blew me right out of the story!" said the pig. The wolf looks for the pig under the pile of straw and finds the pig is gone. The pig is taken out of the story. He arrives at his brother's house just in time to save him and take him out of the story. The pigs take the pages and turn them into paper airplanes. They fly into other children rhymes, stories and riddles. They come upon a dragon and unfold their story of the to alter the ending. This book can be read to students in the second grade and/or read by students in the third grade that are able to differentiate the two versions of the story. The story is told by the pigs when the original is told in third person. This is a very different book from the traditional story but it would be interesting to read to students who are already familiar with the story.
