Summary

Book Review

While making a birthday cake for his Granny,Al(the Wolf) runs out of sugar. He goes to his neighbors(the three little pigs) houses to ask for sugar and is ignored or treated rudely by each pig. Coincidentally, Al has a cold and he sneezes and blows down the first two houses(killing the first two pigs)-a total accident. Al eats the first two little pigs-he is a wolf after all, and the pigs are dead anyway. The third little pig refuses to give Al sugar and then insults his Granny! So Al gets pretty upset(his Granny was insulted) and throws a fit. The police come, the story is twisted, and the rest is history.

I think this is a GREAT book. The author puts a creative twist on a familiar story, incorporating humor and a unique style to capture readers. The illustrations are vivid and engaging. This book is wonderful for teaching different perspectives-all characters have a different view of the story. What do you think really happened?
