This is a fantastic book. I read it when I was younger and I had to share it with my kids! They really enjoy it too and I hope one day they want to share it with their kids!

After talking about the original story of "The Three Little Pigs, I read the this book. Then we discussed what "bias" meant. From here the students worked in groups to discuss how bias could/would change how events were depicted in print or movie/documentaries.

It was good, not perfect quality but I didn't need perfect. It is for children so it worked great. The kids loved the book.

My elementary-school age son loves the upside-down fairy tale books, like The Stinky Cheese Man, The Wolf Who Cried Boy, or The Big Bad Pig and the Three Little Wolves. This book isn't as much fun for him as those, because at least 80% of the humor is intended for somebody no younger than 12.
*I* laugh my head off whenever we read it; it's certainly a five-star book. Just don't expect a young child to enjoy the book.

Format: School & Library Binding
Finally, after all this time, Alexander T. Wolf (alias "the Big Bad Wolf") emerges to tell his side of the 3 Little Pigs tragedy. Blaming a publicity-frenzied press for exaggerating the truth of the story, he asserts his innocence, rationalizes the nature of the circumstances, and indulges here and there in the art of blaming the victim. While admitting that he did destroy the houses of the first two pigs and eat the unfortunate home-owners, he explains that "the real story is about a sneeze and a cup of sugar."

On the day in question, Mr. Wolf, despite suffering from a bad cold, was making a cake for his dear old granny when he ran out of sugar. Naturally, he went around to his closest neighbors (who happened to be pigs) asking to borrow enough to finish his cake, but the pigs were all quite rude and refused to help him. That would have been all there was to the story had it not been for the wolf's insufferable head cold, which caused him to sneeze on the occasions of his first two visits. It wasn't his fault that the first two little pigs had unwisely built their houses of straw and sticks, respectively. One sneeze was all it took to knock each house down onto it's piggy occupant -- and, seeing the pigs tragically killed, Mr. Wolf saw no reason to let a couple of perfectly good ham dinners lie there going to ruin. Wolves eat pigs -- it's just their nature. As to why he was seen attacking the front door of the third little pig's brick house, A. Wolf has a perfectly reasonable explanation for that, as well.

Perhaps I should point out the fact that A. Wolf did not technically write this book himself -- for obvious reasons (they don't allow typewriters in prison, and it's devilishly hard to hold and control a pen when all you have to work with are paws).

Did you know that the wolf is really innocent? He just had a cold. This book can be a good introduction to the concept of two sides to every story. It's creative and enjoyable to read.
