A delightfull retelling of the three little pigs story. Three little gators strike out on their own in an east Texas swamp. Their mother warns them to build strong houses that can protect them from Big-bottomed Boar, who likes to eat tasty, tender gators for his snack. Soon, First Gator builds himself a nice house out of rocks. Second Gator reckons rocks are too much work, so he builds his house with sticks. And Third Gator’s house of sand is the easiest one to build! But soon Big-bottomed Boar shows up. With a bump, bump, bump of the fierce boar's rump, he knocks over Third Gator's house of sand. It doesn't take long for that rump to bump Second Gator's house of sticks. But he can't knock over Third Gator's house of stones, so he tries another way in - through the chimney! Guess what happens to the Boar's rump after that?!

This charming adaptation of the story of the "Three Little Pigs" has the three gators narrowly escaping the clutches big bottomed boar. Engagingly illustrated--who knew alligators could be so expressive?

This tale is a twist on the folktale "The Three Little Pigs." Instead of three little pigs, the main characters are three little gators who were just sent out in the world to make it on their own. Their mother leaves them with words of wisdom to build nice, strong houses and to stay away from the "Big-Bottomed Boar." Read this tale to find out what type of houses these gators build and discover if they are able to escape the teeth of the Big-Bottomed Boar.

A spin on the three little pigs that your child will love. This is my daughter's favorite book and I read it almost every night to her. Make sure you read with a southern accent and your child will be even more delighted :-)
