Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig by Eugene Trivizas


Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig by Eugene Trivizas

The classic fight between pigs and wolves as you've never seen it. The three little wolves erect first a solid brick house. The big bad pig comes along and when huffing and puffing fails to work, he uses a sledgehammer to bring the house down. Next they build a home of concrete: The pig demolishes it with his pneumatic drill. The three little wolves choose an even stronger design next time round: They erect a house, made of steel, barbed wire, armor plates and video entry system, but the pig finds a way to demolish it too. It is only when the wolves construct a rather fragile house made of cherry blossoms, daffodils, pink roses, and marigolds that the pig has a change of heart...Witty, subversive and a brilliant read aloud picture book. Eugene Trivizas' text for The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig is perfectly complemented by Helen Oxenbury's watercolour illustrations.
