"Having grown up with the story of "The Three Little Pigs," when I first read this spoof on the traditional tale, I just had to laugh. The wolf tells his side of the story just like young children always feel it's important to give their version of what happens. According to the wolf, he was not doing anything wrong (what a surprise!) and he's gotten a bum deal ever since the events occurred which are related in the story.

This is a great book to use when teaching point of view. It's easy to see that the story with which we are all familiar takes on a whole different spin when the point of view of the author changes. After listening to this story and perhaps some other of the now popular modern day spins on some traditional tales, it might be a great idea to have your students write them own modern day spin on a favorite fairy tale."

"This story is a hilarious retelling of the story of the 3 Little Pigs from the prospective of the Big Bad Wolf. This book is funny and engaging and children love it. It is great to use in an activity alongside a book about the classic telling of the 3 Little Pigs to help teach children about story elements, prospective, and similarities and differences in books."
