Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-K—A good, strong classic retelling. The main elements are here, minus the more violent aspects: the pigs each escape to one another's homes, and, when the Big Bad Wolf climbs down the chimney, he lands in a pot of soup, burns his bottom, and runs away, never to return. With a nod to modern sensibilities, the pigs come in shades of pink and brown and include a sister devoid of hair ribbons and smart enough to use bricks. Simple acrylic cartoon illustrations with thick black outlines make the story easy to see from a distance. Children in small groups or on laps will enjoy searching the pages for two mice and poring over the elaborate endpapers. Libraries needing a standard version to play counterpoint to all the fractured fairy tales will do well to add this to their collections.—Suzanne Myers Harold, Multnomah County Library System, Portland, OR
