A Southwestern twist on the "Three Little Pigs" tale, this tale tells the story of three little javelinas (a variety of wild pig) who meet up with a coyote, who stands in for the traditional wolf. Otherwise, the story follows the same familiar plot. Local touches show one javelina building his house from cactus ribs, and the 3rd one uses adobe bricks. This smartest little javelina, in whose house the others all shelter is a girl javelina, adding some gender equality into the old mix. The illustrations are wonderful, and any child, whether from the Southwest or not, should love this new telling of an old tale. I have given the book to half a dozen children ranging in age from 3 to 5, and their parents report that the kids enjoy it. I think the parents do too.

Clever southwestern themed version of The Three Little Pigs.

The Three Little Javelinas is a great story. Our class used this book when comparing similar stories. In this case, we compared it to The Three Little Pigs. Unlike the traditional fairy tale, this book had a girl javelina. It also had a Southwestern touch to the pigs building supplies and other things. Definitely an enjoyable book!

This is a funny book that us adults love as well as our lovely two year old. It teaches them different words and how there are similar stories just slightly different in other areas. We loved the graphics and how there really wasn't that much violence in it. We had a difficult time finding a book about the three little pigs that wasn't to violent for our two year old. I strongly recommend this book to any one.
