good retelling

You never quite know which details are going to be in the Three Little Pigs story, so there's always a bit of a surprise. I like this retelling, even though the pigs don't just run to safety at each other's houses. It's a longer read, but you get to enjoy the third little pig's craftiness and admire his creative problem solving. This is a more involved story than I recall as a child, and I liked the additional details.


We had the same story with sparrows

spoiler alert

Just so you know (my daughter and I were surprised... guess we are used to the Disney version ;) but the wolf actually eats the little pigs!
