It was as hilarious as 2 pigs in a mud puddle. Because 1 pig was fighting 3 wolves. And they all got to live together at the end.

Until now, people think that the wolf is bad and the pig is good. The content of this story is reversed. The pig is fierce and aggressive. He should not do acts of violence. The original is better.

I used to do a unit in my fifth grade classroom on fairy tale twists. I included this book as one of the stories I read aloud to them as an example. This is the 3 little pigs and the big bad wolf except in reverse and more modernized. This book gives the wolves' perspective. What if the wolves were good and the pig was bad?
Instead of straw, wood and brick, these wolves use bricks, concrete, and armor. The pig gets quite violent with each home he tears apart. In the end he can't resist the house of flowers. Apparently the flowers mellow him out and turn him into one of the good guys. The hippie in me cheers! I especially love how the good little wolves manage to save their teapot each time they have to move. Because everything is made right with a little bit of tea, right?
The illustrations are colorful and well done making them pleasing to look at and spurring the reader on to the next page.
Why bother with twists on fairy tales? It is good for kids to see a story written from another perspective. This one was interesting and different. Because of the violence, I would recommend for ages 8 and up.
