Wiesner, Caldecott Medal recipient for Tuesday, and Caldecott Honor winner for both Sector 7 and Free Fall, prefers not to wait around until pigs fly. He gives them wings (or paper airplanes) and sets them on their way! In his latest flight of fancy, Wiesner uses shifting illustration styles and fonts to startle complacent readers into an imaginary world even as they ponder the conventional structure of story. His trademark crafty humor and skewed perspectives will tickle readers pink (even the nonporcine variety)! (Ages 4 and older) --Emilie Coulter

An interesting spin on a classic children's story. The pigs really are the heroes in this book! I like how they take the pages of the book and use them in a different story. Read morePublished 25 days ago by Aleina Chun
It was a great story says my 5 year old grandson. He loved the pictures and the surprise ending with all the creatures!Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
I bought this as a gift for my grandson, and my daughter (his mom) said that it wasn't true to the story at all, and that she didn't even want the book.Published 1 month ago by Diane Lee Wiscott
Cute rewrite of "The Three Little Pigs" as only David Wiesner can do it. Clever and appealing.Published 1 month ago by Frances G
A new spin on a well known bedtime story. Mischievous humor for adults and kids alike. I like Wiesner's u-turn from the expected classic narrative. Fun to read.Published 2 months ago by Penny Pincher
