Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The three little pigs are appealing and the wolf agreeably wicked in Paul Galdone's colored illustrations for this winning picture-book version of a classic nursery tale. The book is particularly comfortable in size and shape for reading aloud to lap-sitters." Booklist, ALA

"Three little pigs to savor, and a wolf to lord it over: from the clover-sprigged jacket to the third little pig covering the steaming pot from which the wolf's tail protrudes, this is a blithe, unbloody business with a leer on the face of the wolf that you can only laugh at.ÉNo one will want to abandon Leslie Brooke but like Galdone's Henny Penny, this animates the tale for the widest possible audience." Kirkus Reviews

"Paul Galdone gives new life to the childhood classic with his colorful and realistic pictures. In each one, he manages to capture the mood of the moment, and, through subtle touches, adds much to the story. . . . All in all, a very appealing edition of a beloved story." School Library Journal

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career.

He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.
