This is an excellent book for kids who play too rough with their pets expecting reactions. The little piggies here learned that we need to treat others the way we would like to be treated. It is also a nice change from the typical bad wolf perspective since here the little piggies are the trouble makers. Also teaches a good lesson about bullying.

This book was a really cute twist on the common tail of the three little pigs where instead of the pigs being frightened of a big bad wolf, the pigs are flirting with death and messing with the wolf. Its funny and cute all the things they do to the wolf to show he wont bite them, but then in the end he eventually is the one chasing them! I had a laugh, so I know many children will too! There are a few words on each page but they are simple and used in a creative way to add to the artwork. From the font style choices to the placement and curves of the letters, its as if they are showing an action and a part of the art. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a more pleasant book to read to their children without scaring the children like some might get from the three little pigs.

Poor wolf. Naive pigs.

Love the rythmn and beat of the text & the varied expressions on the pigs' faces. A good sense of movement in the illustrations too. I also like how the things the pigs make the wolf do escalate throughout the book--and that look of woe on the wolf's face! Love that the pigs get their come-uppance at the end. Lots of thoughtful details here. ( )

Take your seat in the front row and watch in wonder as three cheeky little circus pigs make a wild wolf jump through hoops (literally), endure feats of astounding derring-do, and even withstand perilous games of dress-up. Safe in the thought that "Wolf Won't Bite!" they even put their heads between his jaws ...but can you push a wolf too far? Sure to strike a chord with anyone who has both a pet and a young child, this is a very funny and playful story with a snappy ending!
