Jon Scieszka’s master storytelling is comical and creative as he describes the wolf’s side of the story in great detail, even giving him a name to go by. Scieszka does a great job in relating the wolf’s predicament to the viewers, so that when you read the story, you probably are feeling sorrier for the wolf then for the little pigs. I always enjoyed the idea that the true story of the three little pigs, was different than what we knew to be true.

Jon Scieszka, A. Wolf Jon Scieszka was born September 8, 1954 in Flint, Michigan. Wolf. For those who think they know the story of the Three Little Pigs and the Big, Bad Wolf, here it is as they've never heard it before. In this highly acclaimed collaboration between Scieszka and Smith, Alexander T. Wolf tells his side of the incident. Jon Scieszka was born September 8, 1954 in Flint, Michigan. After he graduated from Culver Military Academy where he was a Lieutenant, he studied to be a doctor at Albion College.

The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig by Eugene Trivizas Paperback CDN$ . 9. The book begins predictably: the three pigs set out to seek their fortune, and when the first pig builds a house of straw, the wolf blows it down. Here's when the surprises start

The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig by Eugene Trivizas Paperback CDN$ . Here's when the surprises start. The wolf blows the pig right out of the picture and out of the story itself. In the following frames, the story continues as expected: the wolf eats the pig and moves on to the other houses. But the pictures no longer match up.

The three little pigs threw their apples and struck the wolf in the head. But the three little pigs had spotted him through the window. They made a blazing fire in the hearth, put on a pot of water, which soon began to boil. As the wolf lay stunned, they hurried down the tree and made their escape. Soon they saw the wolf coming up the hill. Turning the butter-churn on its side, they rolled it down the hill. Just as the wolf was coming down the chimney, they took off the cover, and in fell the wolf. The wolf howled with pain, jumped out of the pot, and ran out the door.

The big bad wolf has spent ten years in pig prison for the destruction of the three little pigs, and he has quite a story to tell that just might prove his innocence! .

My 3-yr-old's preschool has been doing a lot of 3 little pigs activities the past couple of weeks so I thought this might be fun. My daughter tends to be very easy to frighten and very against anything scary (and so we've never done the whole some animals eat other animals life lesson), so after reading the other reviews, I pre-read it and figured out how to skip over the pigs getting eaten bits (there are no scary pictures). BUT, my husband let me sleep in and read the book to her first, and he didn't edit it. And she loved it! :) It's really a very cute book, and at least wasn't too scary or mean for my little tender heart.

I've always loved this version of "The Three Little Pigs," as told by the Wolf. The narrating wolf (who you're free to not believe) claims to have been a victim of a bad cold and some very rude swine. It's a clever and funny approach with wonderfully unique artwork.

The one word of caution for parents who are sensitive about this sort thing: this is working of the classic version of the story, meaning that the first two pigs are in fact killed and eaten. They don't escape to their brother's house and it's made clear that they're killed ("dead as a doornail" is the exact wording, which always tickled me.) Now I personally don't feel this is anything traumatic but it's worth being aware of for parents.

I remember reading this book as a child and I forgot about its existence, until Amazon recommended the book to me. It definitely brought back a wave of nostalgia and I love it as much as I did as a kid. It's dark and some may find it offensive (I grew up with Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark for reference), but I personally don't believe that it needs to be edited when read to children.

I have always loved this story as a kid and was so ecstatic when I saw this on here. I bought it immediately and read it to my three year old the night I received it.
The book is in great condition, it's almost as if I bought it directly from a book fair. the pages are all there and no tears or damage to them either.

An old story told from a different perspective. I liked it when my kids were younger and hope the grandkids will, too. I also purchased 2 other versions of the 3 Little Pigs so they can have fun comparing and deciding which tale is the most truthful [or most fun].

Who doesn't love The True Story Of The 3 Little Pigs. I bought this book 30 years ago (man I'm old) to read to my son's 2nd grade class. Now 30 years later I bought a copy for my grand kids. They love it! Wonderfully funny story that makes you feel a little sorry for the wolf. Great buy!

My sister turned me on to the book when she was in college working on her education degree. The first time I read the book I thought, what a great story. I purchased the book when nephews, nieces, and Godchildren came into my life. I always get "will you read that one more time". I do. I know children generally say "one more time". But, when the visit they always ask if I will read the story about the real story of the threel little pigs. I think the book is life at it's best. We all see things differently and it is all in the wording and agenda(slow news day so they pick on the poor ole wolf)of others. I purchased the book to give to my Uncle so he could read it to his grandson. When I was little he gave me a Uncle Remus book and he would read over and over...I have never forgot the book or the times I know I rushed him to sit down and read to me. There is nothing on this earth more precious than memories. Amazing the small things we remember and the love related to those memories.

This book is a lot of fun. I have had it in my classroom for years but of course when I want to use it for a lesson on point of view I can't find it. Thankfully it was easy to find. Even though some of my class had already read/heard this before everyone enjoyed it during the lesson. It lead to some great discussions and was the perfect choice for teaching point of view to my third graders.
