You thought you knew the story of the "The Three Little Pigs"... You thought wrong.

"In this humorous story, Alexander T. Wolf tells his own outlandish version of what really happens during his encounter with the three pigs.... Smith's simplistic and wacky illustrations add to the effectiveness of this fractured fairy tale."
--Children's Literature

"Older kids (and adults) will find very funny."
--School Library Journal
