When it comes time for the three little wolves to go out into the world and build themselves a house, their mother warns them to beware the big bad pig. But the little wolves' increasingly sturdy dwellings are no match for the persistent porker, who has more up his sleeve than huffing and puffing. It takes a chance encounter with a flamingo pushing a wheelbarrow full of flowers to provide a surprising and satisfying solution to the little wolves' housing crisis.

This is a delightful twist on the classic Three Little Pigs Story. It is both witty and clever enough to appeal to children and adults.
Good Points
As my children and I sat down to read this book, giggles erupted upon the reading of the first page and the warning to beware the big, bad pig. The story draws you in immediately as the author sets about to twist everything you expect from this familiar story and leave you wanting more with each turn of the page. The pig resorts to sledgehammers and pneumatic drills to blow these houses down. The watercolor illustrations blend perfectly with the story adding to the humor. After we finished, the kids begged for me to read it to them again.
