The Lovereading4Kids comment

This particularly jolly retelling of the story of the three little pigs and the wolf is enlivened by Stephen Tucker’s funny, rhyming text, Nick Sharratt’s typically bright and comic illustrations, and by an inspired used of flaps. As the three little pigs leave home to make room for new brothers and sisters and start building their houses, the wolf is shown in his kitchen: lifting the flaps reveals the cupboards to be completely bare! The collapse of the straw and stick houses is dramatically depicted via more lifting of flaps, while a 3D pop up on the final page drops the wolf neatly into the little pigs’ stew! Great fun and it comes with a CD of the story read by the inimitable Anna Chancellor too. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Lift-The-Flap Fairy Tales: The Three Little Pigs by Stephen Tucker, Nick Sharratt

In Lift-the-Flap Fairy Tales:The Three Little Pigs, the traditional fairy tale is retold in irreverent, playful rhyme that's perfect for reading aloud, and brilliantly accompanied by Nick Sharratt's bright and vibrant illustrations. There are flaps to lift and pop-up surprises on every page: see what happens when the wolf huffs and puffs, be quick and close the doors and windows in the house of bricks, and watch the page pop up as the big bad wolf comes falling down the chimney! Includes a free audio CD read by Anna Chancellor, with two tracks: listen to the story alone, or follow along with the book by turning the pages when you hear the chime.

And look out for Lift-the-Flap Fairy Tales: Jack and the Beanstalk!
