A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.

Award winning Emily Gravett gives the wolf a chance in this visually bold and entertaining inversion of the story of three little pigs. Three brave little pigs tease the big scary wolf making him the butt of every circus trick. They shoot him from a cannon, ride him bareback round the ring and throw knives at him boasting all the time that he won’t bite. For a final trick, they even dare to put their heads in his big scary jaws. Tension mounts – and who will get the last laugh!

Synopsis

Wolf Won't Bite! by Emily Gravett

Take your seat in the front row and watch in wonder as three cheeky little circus pigs make a wild wolf jump through hoops (literally), endure feats of astounding derring-do, and even withstand perilous games of dress-up. Safe in the thought that Wolf Won't Bite! they even put their heads between his jaws ...but can you push a wolf too far? Sure to strike a chord with anyone who has both a pet and a young child, this is a very funny and playful story with a snappy ending!
