True Story of The Three Little Pigs

Written by Jon Scieszka • Illustrated by Lane Smith

Reviewed by Jacob (age 7)

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs is a fractured fairy tale written by Jon Szcieska. This story is about the 3 Little Pits but it is told from the wolf's point of view.

In this version, the wolf needs sugar for his grandmother's birthday cake. He goes to the neighbers houses who were the 3 pigs. While he was at their houses, he sneezes and the pigs' houses get destroyed. When he gets to the third pig's house, you won't believe what happens. You should read the story to find out the rest.

This was an interesting book because the wolf is telling the story. He is telling about himself and he is very nice. In the original 3 Little Pigs he is very mean. I like the nice wolf better.

I would recommend this book to kids ten and under or to anyone who likes to read fairy tales. The illustrations are great and the author uses a lot of humor when he tells the story.
