    Beware of the Big Bad Pig, little wolves Once upon a time, I worked as a school librarian Those were the days of fairy tales.Whenever I tried to teach young readers in the library that all stories have different facets and perspectives, as well as interpretations, I would grab this wonderful fractured fairy tale and read it aloud to a group of kids, previously familiar with the original story of the three little pigs and the big bad wolf They invariably expected to be asked to shout with me

    This book is truly hilarious I was reading it to a class of children and couldn t stop myself from laughing out loud It is a twist on a classic tale, as the name suggests, about three little wolves that leave their mother to build a house The first house built of bricks gets knocked down by the BIG BAD PIG who uses a sledge hammer The second house built of concrete, gets knocked down by a pneumatic drill The third house, built of the strongest materials imaginable, gets blown up by dynamite

    What a wonderfully enchanting spin off of the Three Little Pigs tale Unlike most fairy tales, the wolves in this story are cuddly and lovable with soft fur and fluffy tails On three occasions, they try to build a house, each time of sturdier materials, only to have it blown down by the big bad pig Their determination and perseverance is admirable, and the reader is likely to be cheering them on The illustrations add to the charm At last, a flamingo gives them flowers The final house buil

    On first glance one can be mistaken for assuming this is just yet another version of the classic the three little pigs, yet this book in my view is a hidden gem By revising the orignal story Eugene Trivizas has provided children with a brilliant, funny and paradoxical book that I believe will appeal to not only younger readers but adults alike.The book opens with the three little wolves being cautioned by their mother to be wary of the big bad pig and as a result the wolves decide to build a

    I really enjoyed reading The Three Little Wolves and The Big Bad Pig and I think it is perfect for children in key stage one It was a great twist on the original story of the Three Little Pigs and The Big Bad wolf The story had really interesting vocabulary and it was a great way for children to learn words such as pneumatic drill It was really interesting how the wolves did everything in their power to stay safe by creating big strong houses however this failed at keeping the big bad pig out

    The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig is a story written by Eugene Trivizas along with illustrations by Helen Oxenbury about how three wolves try to outsmart a big bad pig This story is surely a classic that will be read over and again Eugene Trivizas writing is creative and brilliant as he sets the story during the modern age where machinery works to each character s advantage Also, I love the way that Eugene Trivizas reverses the roles of the characters such as instead of their bei

    The Three Little Wolves and The Big Bad Pig is a story based on the tradition story of The Three Little Pigs In this story the roles are reversed and it is the little wolves who are attempting to escape the wrath of the Big Bad Pig The pig manages to knock down each of the three wolves homes using a range of devices including hammers and a detonator The wolves end up making a house out of flowers and although it would seem that this is a silly idea, the pig is transformed by the sweet smel

    The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig by Eugene Trivizas is a fantastic book that puts a clever twist on the classic Three Little Pigs tale.After their mother decides it is time for them to move out, the three little Wolves set out to build a new home for themselves, ever fearful of the big bad Pig Their use of materials is never a match for the Pig who will go to extreme lengths pneumatic drills and such to tear their house down That is until, the Pigs discover that the use of a r

    This story was a retelling of The Three Little Pigs In this version, there are 3 little wolves and a big bad pig I really enjoyed reading this version While the story was pretty similar, it had some major differences For example,I thought the change in the pig at the end of the story was very unique and I liked how he became the Good Bad Pig I also enjoyed that the wolves did everything that they could think of to stay safe, and in the end, the house that was the most fragile turned out t

    My niece and nephew both liked this book My niece is older and is familiar with The Three Little Pigs, so she really enjoyed how this book turned that tale on its head She laughed at several of the twists and turns, and she was eagerly anticipating how the Three Little Wolves would outsmart the Big Bad Pig I think the story really lost steam for her, though, with the building of the final house, and the pig s conversion to gentleness I do think she appreciated the story a great deal, but I i
