    " Such a creative twist to the story of the "Three Little Pigs". I love how this story follows the same concept as every other version, but the story is told from the Wolf's point of view, which makes him a good guy instead of the villain. The story is written as if the wolf is actually talking to you and not just narrating a book, and tells it in such a way that you believe him and no longer see the wolf as a bad guy. The writing style of Jon Sciezka is very vital to the feel of the book, if it was written a different way, it probably would not have had the same feel or believability as it does. The illustrations are also unique, the cover looks like a news paper and the illustrations in the book are very detailed, and give the audience an image of the good "bad" wolf. I really like how the author makes the Wolf as a sweet motive of going out to the pigs' houses and how the Wolf reasons why he eats meat is very clever. I would recommend this book for anyone. For parents and teachers, reading the "original" story of the "Three Little Pigs" first would be good so the child knows what the Wolf means when he says lines about how this is the real story or that he was "framed". Then the students/children could compare the two stories. "

    " This story was told from the wolf's point of view and how he was framed. This story can be used to introduce different types of print and sources for research in elementary school classes. The book can also be used to teach children as they read, to consider the source, and the perspective of the writer. Such topics can be discussed in grades K - 5. "

    " This book used to be my absolute favorite when I was younger. I just love the idea of switching up the plot of the Three Little Pigs. This book is definitely one that every kid should read. "

    " This version is hilarious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Phillips | 1/16/2014

    " I thought this was an interesting retelling of the original story of the three little pigs. I think that kids in a 3rd grade class would probably enjoy this the book than most other grades. Its a good book that shows you that there is ALWAYS two sides to every story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew Mealer | 12/25/2013

    " Funny telling of the Three Little Pigs story that comes from the wolf's perspective. Very enjoyable and kids laugh because its different from the original. Fun artwork too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda V | 12/23/2013

    " Much prefer this version of the classic. Gives an awesome perspective from the wolf and is very useful for teaching lessons about points of view/perspective. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elena | 12/14/2013

    " If you see this guy's name on a book, just read it. You won't regret it. "

    " I read this story to my grandchildren last night. They fell asleep third page, but I finished it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Collins | 12/7/2013

    " Splendid book about the story of the three little pigs, but from the wolf's point of view. Kind of like Wicked for kids. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carlee | 12/5/2013

    " This book is a fun spin on the traditional children's story, The Three Little Pigs. It's humorous nature makes it easy for the reader to be ingaged with the story. It shows that there are two sides to every story and that assumptions cannot be made without knowing the whole story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arlene Allen | 11/19/2013

    " Is this not in your story time repetoire? It should be! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 11/17/2013

    " Hilarious send up of the traditional tale. I shared this book with my nephews however and they didn't laugh as much as I did, so maybe this is for older kids who are familiar with the original tale and can appreciate farce and satire. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 11/4/2013

    " This is a great version of the Three Little Pigs story. Great to talk about the life lesson that there are always two sides to a story. Love the illustrations, too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherri | 8/1/2013

    " This is hilarious. When you read it try doing the wolf's voice with a Brooklyn accent - only makes it funnier! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Elizabeth | 7/21/2013

    " A seriously cute read, and I would definitely recommend it for everyone actually, not just children. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tess Paxson | 7/13/2013

    " I love this book too! I love the illustrations more though! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meagan Rivera | 5/21/2013

    " This book was too cute. As an adult, I really enjoyed reading it to my child. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Malika J. | 5/12/2013

    " We all know that the Three Little Pigs were innocent, right? Wrong. This is the tale from the Big Bad Wolf's side. This is a great story to talk about perspectives. It also great to work on comparing and contrasting. Pair with The Three Little Pigs and Swine Lake, both by James Marshall. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Campbell | 3/15/2013

    " Very cute children's story, very cute spin on the children's story, I should say. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ms. Finger | 1/18/2013

    " This is a funny and practical take on the Grimm's brothers' fairytales. Great read for anyone who has grown a little tiresome of the unrealistic endings of fairtales. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana | 8/24/2012

    " One of my favorite stories as a kid! Such a unique take on the story! "

    " This one happens to be a fast favorite for my six yr old. We take turns reading this to one another. It's a funny little giggles book. We liked to hear the wolfs side in this tale. : ) "
