This edition of the popular story of three porcine siblings and one wily wolf has endured for almost 30 years--the building of different kinds of houses, the wolf's various attempts to lure the smart pig from his brick house, and the satisfying denouement, where the wolf lands in the pot of boiling water as the main course for the pig's supper. Before children can understand a hilarious parody such as Jon Scieszka's The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, they should get a delicious, Galdone-style taste of the real McCoy. (Ages 3 to 6) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
My child fell in love with this combo when we checked it out at our public library.
Also - this version is a little longer than the normal story by having the wolf try to trick the 3rd pig into getting outside - which makes the story even better!
Did the pigs' mom always send them away in tears because she could not afford to keep them?
