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.

Synopsis

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.

Reviews

Beautiful... Radically reimagines not just the story of the eponymous pigs, but the book form itself. Telegraph Witty dialogue and physical comedy abound in this inspired retelling of a familiar favorite. School Library Journal With surreal, complex, layered and beautifully executed pictures this version has much to intrigue mystify and discuss. The School Librarian Very adventurous and a good read.

David Wiesner

David Wiesner is one of the best-loved and most highly acclaimed picture book creators in the world. His books have been translated into more than a dozen languages and have won numerous awards.

Wiesner generally spends several years creating each new book. Many versions are sketched and revised until the story line flows smoothly and each image works the way he wants it to. He creates three-dimensional models of objects he can't observe in real life, such as flying pigs and lizards standing upright, to add authenticity to his drawings.
