Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618889345, Hardcover)A wolf, Big and Bad, is on the loose, bounding across the hills and gobbling up every creature in his path. As he grows taller than the midnight moon, the other animals begin to worry that soon the planet will be too small for his increasing appetite. Beavers try to drown him in their pond, crows pelt him with walnuts, and moles dig an underground pit—to no avail. Alone, they are helpless against the mighty wolf, until a pair of wily cats comes up with a plan . . . Etienne Delessert reimagines the classic tale of “The Three Pigs” by turning the tables on the marauding wolf as the animals join together to set a trap to stop his ravenous rampage. Beautifully illustrated, this allegorical retelling offers an alternative perspective on the original story, extending its significance and raising questions about unchecked aggression and the power of cooperation.

In this variation on the classic tale of the three little pigs, two clever cats decide to rid their locale of a vicious wolf whose hunger threatens the entire planet, and enlist the help of assorted animals to build houses for the bait--three exquisitely pink pigs.
