In this clever retelling of the The Three Little Pigs, Wolf is a character larger than life. He is as tall as the moon, eats every
animal in his way, wears the skin of cats as a hat, and even has birds who clean his shiny, spiky teeth at night!

No matter what type of plan the other animals come up with, nothing can stop Wolf. Until one day, when two cats come up with a scheme to use three cute, plump pink pigs to lure Wolf into a trap.

The first house they make, of twigs and straw, comes down easily -- but the pigs have escaped through a trap door! The second house, made of logs, also comes down -- but no pigs! It's not until the Wolf finds the pigs (and other animal guests) at home in their third new house, made of bricks, that things get a little too hot to handle!

This is a fun retelling of the story known by all, with very well-done illustrations. It's a bit scarier than the original version, though, so some young children might not like it as a bedtime read!
