Yikes. This is an intense folktale with death, enchanted objects, witchcraft, and an escaped hanging.

The illustrations are beautiful but also creepy.

I’ll be shelving this with some other folktales that might be better suited for highschool study vs story hour or morning time.

I think..there are no “good guys” in this story at all, nor character development.

I think..more suited for 15+ for violence and for lack of a better word, hedgewitchery.

I was not overly impressed by this book. I thought it was going to be more about how they came to have different beliefs, instead it was a book about sibling rivalry and them coming to understand each other the last few years of their lives.

A humorous retelling of the classic story recounts the fatal episodes in the lives of two foolish pigs and how the third pig managed to avoid the same fate.
