Format: Hardcover
This darling, interactive book is just the thing to get young readers involved with the telling of the story. First page simply states, "First pig building a house." Short, simple, sweet. He enters his new abode and the text says , "One wolf huffing and puffing," but where oh where is that big bad wolf? No where to be found visually to the reader. The reader then is invited to huff and puff through a cut out hole instead of the wolf and see what happens. The next page shows the result of those magnanimous huffs. The same procedure is repeated with pig number two and you can guess what happens with pig's number three house...solid brick walls? .... the puny puffs just blow on through. What's the point then? You and your little one will giggle when you discover why you're huffing and puffing into the brick house. Kids will get a kick out of the fact that they get to participate in such a celebratory blow. This surely will bring on a huge smile and perhaps a cheer from your little one, not to mention vigorous clapping of hands as they find out what's up.

The illustrations are black pen lines and pale watercolours. Both the illustrations and the text add a new fractured fairytale twist to the story that will have your child asking to play with the book again and again. I highly recommend this book.

Winner! I grabbed this book off the display because of the huge hole cut out of the cover. Great hook. Got it home, sat down and read it with my 5 & 3 year old -- we had a blast! Huff & Puff was picked up first over and over again for two weeks.

I’ll admit I found the text truncated. “First pig building a house.” Where’s the word “is”?
But my 3 yr old instantly caught on. She could repeat these sentences because they were written at her current level of speech. Within days she was picking this book up, “reading it” to herself, and getting the words in order. Nice!

The simplicity of the text is matched by the simplicity of the art.
Claudia Rueda’s thin black lines portray a gentle, yet annoyed set of brothers.
Their expressions read as, “Really, wolf? Did you have to blow that down?”
My kids laughed mischievously.

I thoroughly enjoyed huffing and puffing my way through this book with my kids.
They weren’t the only ones hoping we’d read it first.

Huff and Puff: Can You Blow Down the Houses of the Three Pigs? is a very fun twist of the Three Little Pigs by Claudia Rueda. In this interactive story the reader gets to be the big bad wolf! As the big bad wolf you get to huff and puff two little pigs out of their houses. You have to try really hard when you get to the brick house, but the three little pigs have a big surprise for you big bad wolf!
My daughter is three and does not like anything remotely scary right now, so this book was so perfect. She got such a kick out of being the big bad wolf and has wanted to read it constantly since we got it. She just cracks up at getting to huff and puff throughout the book! The illustrations are so soft and sweet! This is a wonderful book for preschoolers and beginning readers! Highly recommend!

I checked this book out at the library upon a librarian's recommendation, and my three-year old girls loved it!! They both really enjoyed huffing and puffing to blow down the pigs' houses. We read it every night, so I know I need to buy it now. Excellent book for young kids!

This is a great book!! My 5 year old daughter loved it and asked me to read it to her at night again and again and again etc. It brings a new meaning to the story of the three little pigs. It allows kids to interact with the story, while teaching them to be generous and entertaining them, which is a mix of qualities not many books have. No matter what the age, you and your kids will love ths book so much! even my 17 year old thought it was very sweet!
