La verdadera historia de los tres cerditos! (The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs)by Jon Scieszka, Lane Smith
The wolf gives his own outlandish version of what really happened when he tangled with the three little pigs. Spanish language edition.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly"Designed with uncommon flair," said PW, this "gaily newfangled version of the classic tale" takes sides with the villain. "Imaginative watercolors eschew realism, further updating the tale." A Spanish-language reprint will be issued simultaneously ($4.99, -055758-X). Ages 3-8. (Mar.)
School Library JournalK-Gr 5 --A new slant on an old, familiar tale. The much maligned A. Wolf tells his side of the story and offers benign explanations for his bad behavior. This translation retains the colorful language and sense of fun found in its English counterpart. Some of the vocabulary is regionalized and may not be universally understood by all Spanish-speaking children without adult clarification. The stylized watercolors with dark shadowing, clever use of perspective, and textured detail will appeal to audiences sophisticated enough to enjoy the tongue-in-cheek humor.
