I'm always looking for a good fairy tale picture book, because, astoundingly, they are almost universally terrible. That is why I'm so excited to have discovered the Nosy Crow Fairy Tales series. Their fairy tale books (Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and The Three Little Pigs), all captivatingly illustrated by Ed Bryan, are extremely successful adaptations.

Because my kids have autism, I'm always straining to avoid fairy tale books that twist the story. My kids still

Zawsze lubiłam bajkę o trzech małych świnkach, więc sięgając po tę książeczkę wiedziałam, że będzie treściowo świetna. Byłam wielce ciekawa ilustracji i się raczej nie zawiodłam. Ed Bryan zdaje się instynktownie wyczuwa kreskę, która spodoba się najmłodszym. Może nie jestem tymi obrazkami oczarowana, ale całość prezentuje się bardzo ładnie i estetycznie.
Co do samej treści, którą uwielbiam: CZYTAJCIE! To cudowna opowieść o tym, że to co dobre w życiu wymaga ciężkiej pracy. Piękne przesłanie.

How many versions of this story are out there? Maybe a gazillion — but this is my favorite. Beautifully illustrated by Ed Bryan, this is a terrific way to introduce (or reintroduce) small children to the classic tale. Kids love huffing and puffing and banging on the door with the wolf, and they’re overjoyed to assist each pig in chanting “Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin” when said wolf attempts to gain entrance to their homes. Love it!

Can't go wrong with the classic Three Little Pigs story! This version, illustrated by Ed Bryan, has the three little pigs defeating the wolf in a new-to-me and definitely humorous way. Had Joey and I giggling. :) ...more

The illustrations for the book are amazing, but there was no adaptation, or personal style added to the story.
