The best way to destroy an enemy is to make him a friend. ~ Abraham Lincoln

What happens when a Big, Bad--and Hungry--Wolf knocks on the door, and Little Pig welcomes him in?

It's an intriguing premise--two frightened pigs and one that doesn't know enough to be frightened host a birthday party for a pork-loving wolf. The characters have their own perspectives, and the reader has the big picture.

I read "Happy Birthday, Big Bad Wolf" to the kindergartners yesterday. The only thing I didn't like about the story was that Momma and Poppa Pig lie--but it was easy to get around that because I told the story rather than read it word for word. (It's too text-heavy for this age group anyway.)

This is an excellent book for helping children see things from different perspectives. It has a plot that moves right along, and a sweet ending.
