Book Description: Everybody knows the story of the Three Little Pigs. Or at least they think they do. But I’ll let you in on a little secret. The real story is…I was framed!
Mary’s Review: “I’ve been framed”. So says Mr. Alexander T. Wolf. According to Mr. Wolf, he was only trying to borrow a cup of sugar. Really? According to Mr. Wolf he had a cold that resulted in his sneezing and blowing the little pigs house down. Really? All this resulted in his eating two of the little pigs. Mr. Wolf says that the media jazzed up the real story to make it more interesting. “I’ve been framed”.
This is a cute version of the Three Little Pigs told from the wolf’s side.
The illustrations are cute and kept the attention of my grandchildren.
I recommend this book for children ages 3-9.
