The classic fight between pigs and wolves as you’ve never seen it.
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 . . .
Witty, subversive and a 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.
