The Lovereading4Kids comment

Ed Bryan’s bright, lively illustration style is perfect suited to this favourite fairy tale, also produced by Nosy Crow as a prize-winning app. The three little pigs have never looked more dapper than here, and little pig number 2, making a statement in her bold orange and pink combination, is particularly fine! The wolf is a raucous presence, rattling up in what looks to be a scruffy burger van, and there’s enough huffing and puffing to give everyone in the family a chance to join in. His comeuppance will have young readers squealing with laughter. As an added bonus, there’s a QR code at the front of the book: scan to hear a free audio reading of the book. ~ Andrea Reece

Ruth from Nosy Crow says: This favourite fairy tale is brought to life by Ed’s vibrant artwork, which is packed with detail and humour. You’ve probably read The Three Little Pigs before, but you’re missing out until you’ve seen the third little pig’s blue prints and the Big Bad Wolf’s pie van! This lively retelling will get the whole family giggling, and fans of the app are sure to love this beautiful book. Get the app here!


The Three Little Pigs by Ed Bryan

The three little pigs leave home to make their way in the world. The first little pig builds a house made of straw. The second little pig builds a house made of sticks. And the third little pig builds a house made of bricks. But it's not long before the Big Bad Wolf turns up ...He huffs and he puffs and he blows down the houses, one by one. But what will happen to the three little pigs?

About the Author

Ever since his art teacher told Ed's parents that their son blossomed in the art room, Ed has followed an artistic path, studying industrial design and working as a 3D artist, animator, and illustrator on video games such as Viva Pinata. He likes nothing better than making up stuff and colouring it in. Ed grew up in Suffolk, in a house full of home computers and pencils.
