The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat Bad Wolf: 06/04/15
The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat Bad Wolf by Mark Teague is a retelling of the classic story. The three pigs are there with a limited budget. The first two spend most of their money on junk food and cut corners with their building supplies. The last one decides to spend her money on bricks, a sandwich and garden supplies so that she can grow more food later.
Then there's the wolf. He's hungry and he wants to buy food. Sadly, though, the village doesn't trust him. So he's left to resorting to violence to get the food he needs.
This version of the Little Pigs is about the rewards of taking risks, especially with strangers. Do right for your neighbors, even the ones who are different and who might seem scary.
