A cute reverse retelling of the Three Little Pigs!
· 3 little wolves, a white one, a grey one, a black one
· Big Bad Pig
So in this reverse story, it is the wolves who are trying to build a house to keep the pig out. They try brick, concrete and steel, all to no avail. Finally they try flowers because they’re so beautiful. And guess what? That’s right, the flowers work! When the Big Bad Pig breathes in the fragrance of the flowers he is changed and becomes the Big Good Pig!
I first read this book when I was living with my mom’s sister. My cousins had this book and it was so funny that when mom saw it at a garage sale she got it for me! Thanks mom!
Rating: 3 paws for the wonderful memories it evoked!
