Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

As depicted by Caldecott Medalist Zemach, these amusingly rag-tag porkers make short work of a dashing, frock-coated wolf. Ages 3-up.
Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2--The Three Little Pigs joins the gallery of newly-illustrated folk and fairy tales that have glutted the market in recent years. At least this version is refined. True to her style, Zemach uses distinctive wispy watercolor strokes to illustrate the story. In this version, the pigs get eaten and stay that way; and after the wolf tries to trick the third pig (with turnips, apples, and the fair), he is cooked in a pot of soup. The characters sport old-fashioned garb, with the pigs in tattered clothes and the wolf in a tailored jacket and top hat. Some of Zemach's interpretations are practical, interesting, and ironic: the wolf has his coat off, draped on his arm, just before he's going to lunge down the chimney. The jump itself is shown in a progressive motion to show the force of the leap. And the final page shows the surviving pig smiling, having his soup, surrounded by a bowl of apples, a basket of turnips, and a souvenir of the wolf--his tail in the pot. An additional item for collections in which another version of this tale is needed. --Marianne Pilla, formerly at Long Beach Public Library, N.Y.

I think the story and lessons of "The Three Little Pigs" story could (and should) just as well be made without the violence...
