Life is pretty sweet for the three little pigs...until a hungry wolf named Tempesto shows up one morning. Percy, Pete, and Prudence refuse to let themselves become breakfast without a fight -- but can anything save the plucky pigs once Tempesto starts huffing and puffing? With his hilarious retelling and irresistible illustrations, Steven Kellogg masterfully updates the classic folktale for a whole new generation of readers.

Steven Kellogg is the illustrator of over eighty picture books for children, including his own retellings of Johnny Appleseed, Paul Bunyan, which School Library Journal declared "one of Kellogg's best books," and Pecos Bill, which Booklist called "a read-aloud treat for the family or classroom."Mr. Kellogg is also the author of Chicken Little, which Booklist said was "one of Kellogg's best efforts to date...a winner every child will like," and Aster Aardvark's Alphabet Adventures, which Kirkus said was "an ingenious alliterative tour-de-farce, perfect accompaniment to the author's zany illustrations.Just try keeping a straight face as you read this aloud."
Steven Kellogg lives in Sandy Hook, Connecticut.From Booklist:
Ages 5^-8. Just as the pig family in this story soups up their old waffle iron with four wheels and various tanks, pipes, and hoses, so Kellogg takes a favorite folk tale and adds his own inventive touches of character, plot twists, and humor. Serafina Sow supports her three little pigs with her traveling waffle business, but when the children graduate from Hog Hollow Academy, she retires to the Gulf of Pasta and turns the business over to the next generation. Percy builds a straw bungalow, Pete a log cabin, and Prudence a brick cottage. When Tempesto the wicked wolf looks at the waffle menu and orders piglet, the traditional tale is off and running, with some entirely new details and no apologies to anyone. Much of the broad humor is carried in the lively, colorful illustrations, though there's wordplay aplenty in the text and pictures too: Tempesto slides down the chimney, lands on the waffle iron, is blasted with maple syrup, smothered in butter, and turned into a "WOLFFLE." Just as Serafina's customers flock to The Wheeled Wafflery, so children will greet Kellogg's latest picture book with eagerness based on memories of his many satisfying books. Pure pleasure for Kellogg fans. Carolyn Phelan
