You thought you knew the story of the “The Three Little Pigs”… You thought wrong.

In this hysterical and clever fracture fairy tale picture book that twists point of view and perspective, young readers will finally hear the other side of the story of “The Three Little Pigs.”

“In this humorous story, Alexander T. Wolf tells his own outlandish version of what really happens during his encounter with the three pigs…. Smith's simplistic and wacky illustrations add to the effectiveness of this fractured fairy tale.”

      Ha I remember this book. The three little pigs retold in a humorous way. So, the big bad wolf is telling us the story about what really happened (according to him) in the story. He claims that he's innocent. It all started with a cold. The wolf had a cold, and he was baking a birthday cake. One thing lead to another, and he ended up eating the pigs. So.. yeah. Happy Reading!

          In this book a wolf wants to tell the true story of the 3 little pigs. He says that he is making a cake for his grandma and he has a cold and he sneezes so that is how the house falls down and when the house falls down the pig dies and the wolf just eats 2 of the pigs . I know this book is outstanding because it has many drawings and many funny prats.When you see this book you will want to buy it or read you will be amazed when you read this book.Also this book is an interesting book cause you don’t know what is going to happen next. This book is outstanding to me and I hope to you too.
