Review:

Clear plots, careful prose style, and bright, action-packed illustrations have catapulted Paul Galdone's takes on traditional tales to the top of teachers' and librarians' lists for decades. Galdone retold and illustrated many folk and fairy tales during his long career, including The Gingerbread Boy, The Little Red Hen, Puss in Boots, and The Three Billy Goats Gruff. His stories always have an exact picture-to-text match and a thoughtful distribution of text to illustration, making them excellent choices for reading aloud to a group of children.

This edition of the popular story of three porcine siblings and one wily wolf has endured for almost 30 years--the building of different kinds of houses, the wolf's various attempts to lure the smart pig from his brick house, and the satisfying denouement, where the wolf lands in the pot of boiling water as the main course for the pig's supper. Before children can understand a hilarious parody such as Jon Scieszka's The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, they should get a delicious, Galdone-style taste of the real McCoy. (Ages 3 to 6)

About the Author:

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.
