Think you know the story of the three little pigs? Not until you've read this version, retold and illustrated by Caldecott Honor winner James Marshall. Children will know and love the familiar characters--three pig brothers and one huffing-puffing wolf--and they will giggle over the funny, new dialogue and cartoon like illustrations, which put a fresh, modern twist on the classic tale.
