This classic story is brought to life through its colorful and creative illustrations. Three pigs are sent out into the world by their mother to start their new lives and seek their fortune. They go their separate ways each building their own house, one of straw, the second of sticks, and the third of bricks. The houses made of straw and sticks may have been easy to build but the pigs learn their lesson the hard way when the big, bad, hungry wolf comes huffing and puffing. After the demise of the first two pigs the wolf makes his way to the third brick house only to find that this little piggy not only built a smarter house but also tricks the wolf into becoming his dinner. So not only is the pig's dinner sweet, so is victory. The lesson of not taking the easy road out is not a new one but one that we all need to be reminded of from time to time. This version is of The Three Pigs is a throwback to the original old English version, a tale not to be missed. Cathy Morrison breathes a fresh look into a story enjoyed for hundreds of years by children all over the world. The classic storyline gains new life through illustrations that whimsically add a modern day twist to the foibles of the pigs and their villain. Rich nuances of color and a tongue in cheek juxtaposition of the characters make a somewhat frightening tale a jovial string of events leading to the final demise of one of literature's classic anti heroes.
