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

What a horrible waste of good cover art. This thing is a rag. If he can get printed, then anyone can! What a stupid rendition of a classic children's story. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Horst

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 4 months ago by Aleina Chun
