Clear plots, careful prose style, and bright, action-packed illustrations have catapulted Paul Galdone's takes on traditional tales to the top of teachers' and librarians' lists for decades. Galdone retold and illustrated many folk and fairy tales during his long career, including The Gingerbread Boy, The Little Red Hen, Puss in Boots, and The Three Billy Goats Gruff. His stories always have an exact picture-to-text match and a thoughtful distribution of text to illustration, making them excellent choices for reading aloud to a group of children.
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.
