It’s a bad day for the Three Little Pigs. Full of slapstick silliness and colourful character/illustrator interactions, this twist on the traditional tale tickles our two.

I checked this one out of the library after hearing your review, and my daughter’s reactions to it were hilariously wonderful. There was lots of pointing, laughing, eyes popping open and jaw dropping.

If that wasn’t enough, I know when we’ve got a hit on our hands when, after just finishing the story, she wants to read it again when Mom comes up to the room. When this happens, she watches Mom out of the corner of her eyes to see if Mom will react the same way that she did.

Great pick! Keep up the good work.

Chris:

Those are the moments that make great book memories for everyone in the family. Thank you so much for sharing it here.

So… did mom deliver on the reactions?
