The True Story of the Three Little Pigs Paperback
by Jon Scieszka
Illustrated by Lane Smith
A hilarious retelling of the "Three Little Pigs" by Jon Scieszka.
You may think you know the story of the "Three Little Pigs" and the "Big Bad Wolf" - but only one person knows the real story. And that person is A. Wolf. His tale starts with a birthday cake for his dear old granny, a bad head cold and a bad reputation.
The rest (as they say) is history. A hilariously inventive retelling of the popular story which "Publishers Weekly" called the 'Funniest book of the year'.
Jon Scieszka began to train as a doctor but left to take a course in fiction writing at Columbia University and to become a teacher.
He lives in Brooklyn and spends his time writing and talking about books.
