A delightful tale using inflected endings.
As my be obvious to all this is a tale that springs from the Three Little Pigs theme. Certainly there are hundreds of these tales, however, if one were to read this story one would be delighted. It does carry the theme of the three little pigs and yet treads a new ground that gives these pigs their own porcine identity. This is somewhat established by the use of inflected endings(-er,-est). The absence of "The Wolf" as an antagonist is a refreshing change from this adaption of a classic tale. Using instead a trio of sister witches to make demands upon our heroes. The pigs overcome the difficulties and come upon an ending that I think most will enjoy, as it is not what some may expect.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The use of inflected endings is displayed nicely in the narrative and in the equally well crafted illustrations. This book will be a treasured addition to my classroom library, as it is well written and illustrated and also provides a nice example of the inflected endings -er and -est (and, yes, that is a selling point for me). I highly recommend this book to teachers, parents and fans of the Three Little Pigs genre.
