    The book The Three Pigs by David Wiesner is a wonderful book for students in the elementary levels. This book has received the Caldecott Award and falls under the Modern Fantasy genre. From the beginning the reader can tell that this might be a simple retelling of the classic story where the wolf huffs and puffs and thrown the poor little pigs houses to the ground. But on the contrary the reader is immediately engaged after a short twist where the pig is blown out of the story and begins talking to the reader then the same thing with the other pigs. From this point on the reader can tell that this is not the classic Three Pig version or a simple retell. The stories twist is very random, because once again they fall into other stories then they get out. The pigs explore a dragon story and drag along a few other characters. In the end they go back to their story along with the other characters and everything is fine, they have some soup and live happily ever after. This story is wonderful because it is so irregular and does not stick to the version most readers are used to.

    A slew of stories all in one

    I really enjoyed David Wiesner's work in this book because he is able to weave different classic favorites into one book to give children and overview of stories that aren't really incorperated into classrooms these days. Wiesner, David. The Three Pigs. New York. Clarion Books, 2001. Reading level: 2.3
