The Three Little Pigs is one of the most beloved children's classics of all time. Just how big and bad is the Big Bad Wolf? Very. And just how silly and careless are two-thirds of the three little pigs? Quite. As most children know, the story of the three little pigs is really about a battle of wits between the wolf and little pig number three-the one who builds his house of bricks, and has a fair portion of smarts above his chinny-chin-chin. Children have loved the drama and humor of this story in all its incarnations ever since it was first printed in English more than a century ago. The whimsical adaptation by Tom Roberts has given illustrator David Jorgensen plenty of room to romp and play. Holly Hunter's narration and Art Lande's music expand and amplify the fun and suspense, making this book-and-cassette combination a true delight. In 1989 the recording earned a Parents' Choice Gold Seal Award.
