The three little pigs are busy doing what the three little pigs always do....building their houses ... and the first little guy gets soaked with a tsunami of spilled juice which causes his straw abode to collapse right in front of him....oh my!! The big bad wolf enters the scene and gets his nose slammed into the door of the second little pig's house causing his nose to need some corrective surgery because oh my....how his nose shape has altered.  Who is doing all these interventions into a perfectly happy and familiar story?  Who is the driving force behind these events and whose voice is that?  Well the reader comes to find out that it is the illustrator of the book who is injecting himself into their pages .  The piggies are not amused. And then low and behold, right in the middle of the story, guess what?  The illustrator runs out of red paint....oh my!  The poor little piggies are drained of colour, pasty white in fact and then the designer has no choice but to experiment with other colours for them. He makes a creative choice and paints them green. We all know from listening to Kermit the frog how that turned out with his famous song, "It's Not Easy Being Green" don't we?  Out of red paint means out of fire that the piggies need at the end of the story because how can you build a hot, steaming, menacing fire without the coveted colour red to fend off that crazy wolf who is about to climb down your chimney and gobble you up?  Your child will love the quirky twist and the unpredictability of the story's hilarious ending.  I laughed right out loud.  This is a fabulous book.  Both young and old will get such a kick out of it I promise you!  I highly, highly recommend it.

My grandchildren love this book and it is a wonderful book for me to use in my classrooms to teach fractured fairy tails, or just to read for fun

Wait! No Paint! is a must have for third grade libraries! The classic story of the three little pigs is cleverly interupted by the illustrator who makes changes to the pigs that make the kids howl. You don't want to miss it!
