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. ( )

Never underestimate a wolf's taste for pork. ( )

A colorful twist on the three little pigs and the big, bad wolf story. I appreciated the simplicity of the illustrations and although they weren't wild illustrations and still have the stark white background, the drawings were huge and still provided a lot to the story. Furthermore, the creative text was fun to read and is a great addition to the creative story. The story is about three little pigs who show in a circus like setting that the big, bad wolf won't bite and that they can do anything (cut him in half, stand him on a stool, ride him like a horse) and he still won't bite... that is until they place their heads between his mighty jaws. I think beginner readers would get a kick out of this humorous twist and enjoy reading the story on their own. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0230704255, Hardcover)

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!

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:17:57 -0400)

Three little circus pigs capture a wild wolf and make him do outrageous tricks, safe in the belief that he would never bite them.
