A Classic with a Twist

For the ones interested in finding different versions of classic fairy tale stories like The Three Little Pigs, let me introduce you to another version: The Three Horrid Little Pigs  by Liz Pichon.
The Three Horrid Little Pigs

In Liz Pichon's version of the Three Little Pigs, Mr. Wolf is a nice, thoughtful character who happens to be a builder! He is helpful and considerate and all he really wants is to help the Three Little Pigs who are just terrible (and lazy) at building houses. These three little pigs have a huge attitude problems, no wonder their mom kicked them out! 
Funny, great dialogue, silly twist and great illustrations is what made The Three Horrid Little Pigs such a great companion to my fall afternoon!
Regardless of what state you live in the USA...I hope you are enjoying this FALL weather as much as I do. Happy Reading!
