In this clever retelling of the The Three Little Pigs, Wolf is a character larger than life. He is as tall as the moon, eats every <BR/>animal in his way, wears the skin of cats as a hat, and even has birds who clean his shiny, spiky teeth at night! <BR/><BR/>No matter what type of plan the other animals come up with, nothing can stop Wolf. Until one day, when two cats come up with a scheme to use three cute, plump pink pigs to lure Wolf into a trap. <BR/><BR/>The first house they make, of twigs and straw, comes down easily -- but the pigs have escaped through a trap door! The second house, made of logs, also comes down -- but no pigs! It's not until the Wolf finds the pigs (and other animal guests) at home in their third new house, made of bricks, that things get a little too hot to handle! <BR/><BR/>This is a fun retelling of the story known by all, with very well-done illustrations. It's a bit scarier than the original version, though, so some young children might not like it as a bed time read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
