The Three Little Pigs (Folk Tale Classics) Hardcover – March 21, 2011

Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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 alternate Hardcover edition.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series, and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. Pre-order the official script book today. Kindle | Hardcover

It also has the wolf becoming so enraged that he forgets how well this little piggy has consistently outwitted him. Angrily, he crawls down the chimney only to become the pig's dinner.
Thus, all of the `morality play' aspects of the story remain. Now whether a young child can shift through the material to garner those gems depends upon the child. My approach is if not now, then later.
Interestingly, one of the things that I found was that my children -boy and girl, 3 and 5 respectively-were unconcerned with the fate of the `less wary' pigs. At this point in time, they simply do not appear to identify with the porcine characters and consequently did not find the story scary or disturbing.
Buy this book if you want the classic story. It is longer, but for toddlers you can simply skip over the extra attempts of the wolf to trick the 3rd piggy, and go to the chimney directly.
My child fell in love with this combo when we checked it out at our public library. So much, in fact, that I had to find a way to purchase it.
