very funny fractured fairy tale with delicious illustrations by the
legendary Helen Oxenbury, will appeal to any young child who just loves
knocking things down! This big bad pig is a can-do kind of fellow and
the wolves so post-modern in their choice of house building materials,
that an unusual solution to the mayhem has to be found. Susannah — From Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig
When it comes time for the three little wolves to go out into the world and build themselves a house, their mother warns them to beware the big bad pig. But the little wolves' increasingly sturdy dwellings are no match for the persistent porker, who has more up his sleeve than huffing and puffing. It takes a chance encounter with a flamingo pushing a wheelbarrow full of flowers to provide a surprising and satisfying solution to the little wolves' housing crisis. Eugene Trivizas's hilarious text and Helen Oxenbury's enchanting watercolors have made this delightfully skewed version of the traditional tale a contemporary classic.
