The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning illustrator David Wiesner takes a very clever and fresh look at a familiar story. Here, the wolf does come a visiting and he does huff and puff and blow down the houses of the three little pigs but that’s just the start of the story. What happens next sees the little pigs off an on amazing adventure. Folding up their old houses and turning them into a paper aeroplane they fly away and get themselves tangled up with all kinds of other familiar rhymes and stories.
The Three Pigs by David Wiesner
Satisfying both as a story and as an exploration of story, The Three Pigs takes visual narrative to a new level. When the wolf comes a-knocking and a-puffing, he blows the pigs right out of the tale and into a whole new imaginative landscape, where they begin a freewheeling adventure as they wander - and fly - through other stories, encountering a dragon and a cat with a fiddle, among others. This familiar tale will never be the same old story again.
