Description

The classic fight between pigs and wolves as you’ve never seen it before! A subversive and hilarious take on the well-loved fairy tale.

The three little wolves erect first a solid brick house. The big bad pig comes along and when huffing and puffing fails to work, he uses a sledgehammer to bring the house down. Next they build a home of concrete: The pig demolishes it with his pneumatic drill. The three little wolves choose an even stronger design next time round: They erect a house, made of steel, barbed wire, armor plates and video entry system, but the pig finds a way to demolish it too. It is only when the wolves construct a rather fragile house made of cherry blossoms, daffodils, pink roses, and marigolds that the pig has a change of heart . . .

A great read for children who enjoyed The Wolf’s Story by Toby Forward. Kids aged 5 and up will enjoy this hilarious, subversive and brilliant read aloud picture book. Eugene Trivizas’s text for The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig is perfectly complemented by Helen Oxenbury’s watercolour illustrations.

Eugene Trivizas has written over 100 books and is the winner of more than twenty national and international prizes and awards. His work has been adapted for stage, screen and radio.

Helen Oxenbury’s warm and witty illustrations have charmed children and adults alike for many years. Her version of Alice in Wonderland, published by Walker Books, won the 2001 Kate Greenaway Award, which she first won in 1969 for The Quangle Wangle’s Hat. She has also won the Smarties Book Prize three times.
