Praise For The Three Little Superpigs: Once Upon a Time

Praise for The Three Little Superpigs:

"Evans' smart twist on the familiar tale will elicit giggles at its clever wordplay and fairy-tale cameos. The details in the. . . brightly colored illustrations will make repeated readings as much fun as the first." -- Kirkus Reviews

"But Evans is an energetic, pop-culture-savvy storyteller: a smart blend of vignettes and spreads keeps the tale tightly paced, and she cleverly evokes the visual and textual tropes of horror and detective movies." -- Publishers Weekly
