    What a wonderful twist on a very beloved, familiar fairytale.  M

    What a wonderful twist on a very beloved, familiar fairytale.  Mommy wolf is portrayed at the beginning of the book with her hair in curlers, her toenails polished and giving advice to her young cubs to go out and build their homes but beware of the big bad pig!  I have to admit I loved the pig's character the very best.  He is this big hulking, menacing looking thug that is up to no good and determined to destroy the houses of the wolves.  There was however charm and charisma in that roly-poly form that made me like him. The wolves start out building a brick house and then graduate to stronger and stronger fortresses because it seems the bad old pig can always outsmart them and take their houses down, not by huffing and puffing but by using a sledgehammer, a pneumatic drill and finally....dynamite.  




    Kids will laugh at his resourcefulness and cunningness as he outsmarts those little wolves and sends them packing from house to house.  Finally, at their wits end, the wolves totally change their strategy of what materials to use, and ask a passing flamingo if they could use his "flowers" to construct their new home.  They creatively design this amazing fragrant house and what happens then will change the pigs life forever.  Miracles can happen, hard hearts can be softened and enemies can be coverted into lifelong friends.  The illustrations are charming, full of expression and wit and could tell the story all on their own.  This is a brilliant story with a fun turn of events that will have both kids and adults alike laughing out loud and cheering those little wolves on to success.  Everyone loves a happy ending....and they all lived happily ever after....the perfect ending to a fairy tale indeed.

    Good Twist

    This is fun book with a twist on on a classic. My 2.5 yr old wanted to hear it every day for about two weeks!

    Fun and Exciting

    I think this story has a really different perspective from the original tale of the three little pigs and the big bad wolf. I think this is a good book for a little older kids because there is some violence like a sledgehammer, a pneumatic drill, and dynamite. I think it is a little violence for really young children. But a very fun and entertaining story to read. I really enjoyed it and I hope you do too.
