The traditional tale of the three little pigs, who made their house of straw, sticks, and bricks.

Not much to say here, but while an earlier review version of the three little pigs was pretty good, there nothing like the original!

Folklore Review:

The three little pigs lived in a house at the bottom of the hill with their mother. The big bad wolf lived at the top of the hill. One day the pigs mother told them that it was time to move out on their own so the three pigs decided to build houses of their own. She warned them to watch out for the big bad wolf because he liked to eat pigs. While the pigs were building their house the wolf was watching them. The first pig built his house of straw. The second pig built his house o

There are many versions of the book The Three Little pigs but I feel that one of the best version is this Walt Disney version by Barbara Brenner.
The main storyline of the book is when three pigs are sent out by their Mother to each build their own houses. The book highlights the different characters of each pig by stating the material they choose to use in order to build their houses. So the first pig, being the laziest, chooses the easiest option by using straw to build his house. Along comes

Main characters: The three little Pigs and the wolf
Setting: at the pigs homes
Point of view: Narrator
Plot: The story is about three little pigs who must build their own houses to live in. The first pig built his house out of straw because it was the easiest way to make a house. The second pig built his house out of sticks which was sturdier than the house made of straw. The third pig built his house out of bricks. Along came a werewolf who blew the house of straw down! Next he went to the next pi

My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.

This is a gentle retelling of "The Three Little Pigs" and should be familiar to those who have seen the Disney animated version. In this version, retold by Barbara Brenner, the three pigs leave home to build their houses. None of the pigs are eaten and no permanent damage is done to the wolf when he clambers down the chimney of the third pig's house, attempting to get to the three pigs. All ends happily and the wolf learns his lesson. Brenner does use some repetition, which is the crowning jewel ...more

After reading a few different authors, Disney's version is my favorite for sure. It has been quite a while since I have heard this story, and honestly I thought it was different. There are so many different publications of it, I assume that is why. Be prepared and willing to work, I think is the moral.
This book was about three pigs that were told by their mom to go live in their own houses. I like this book because the three little pigs were brave. My favourite characters were the three little pigs because they were brave. I would recommend this book maybe because I don't know some people probably don't like the three little pigs.

The Three Little Pigs (Disney's Wonderful World of Reading) by Barbara Brenner (Random House/Grolier Books Club 1973) (Fiction – Children's). This is Disney's own “The Three Little Pigs,” and it is just perfect. It's simply the best retelling of the tale! My rating: 7/10, finished 1962.

This is a pretty good version of The Three Little Pigs. The pigs don't get eaten~~they all end up safe in the brick house. At one point, the wolf dresses as a sheep to trick the pigs, but it doesn't work. The pigs boil some water to get rid of the wolf for good.
This was the first book that I read aloud to my mom.

... I believe that Disney won an oscar for the tune "Who's afraid of the big bad wolf"...
