I remember reading this story in grade school. I liked it alot.

This retell of the Three Little Pigs is a great story that allows students to see that there can be different ways of seeing things. Great story to read aloud and the illustrations are great. Good book students will enjoy.

I recommend this book for reading because it tells the wolf's side of the story. In the real world there are always 2 sides of a story and as the reader it is up to use to determine which side we believe. In this story wolf switches roles from being the bad guy to being the defenseless character that just wanted to borrow some sugar and just so happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. This 2sided story allows children to think and to form their own opinions on the situation. The illustrations in the book are magnificent and very detailed. The overall theme is magnified through the pictures. There are so many real world connections that can be made when reading this price of literature especially because we are already familiar with the original story of The Three Little Pigs.

The true story of the three little pigs was told in a different setting.The wolf is made out to be the good character rather than the bad character as told in many books before. I almost like the way this book was told.

Summary

Add a Summary

This is a retelling of the traditional story, The Three Little Pigs. The main difference is that the Big Bad Wolf is telling the story from his point of view in which he did nothing wrong and has been framed. Very funny and entertaining story.

This story is about a wolf that was originally known as the Big Bad Wolf, retelling his version of what really happen with the encounter of the three pigs. The wolf's intension was to go borrow sugar to make his Grandma a cake for her birthday. The wolf had been coughing and sneezing prior to traveling so when he arrived he accidentally blew the pigs house down. He tried to eat the pigs because he didn't believe in wasting food. The police arrived and let's say the wolf was at the wrong place at the wrong time.

The True story of the Little Pigs is retold with the same story line of the original story, but with the twist. The story is now being told by the wolf's side. This told to show readers that there are always two sides to a story. Very creative way to show that the Big Bad Wolf is trying to prove his innocence.
