9780689815287: The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig

When it comes time for the three little wolves to go out into the world and build themselves a house, their mother warns them to beware the big bad pig. But the little wolves' increasingly sturdy dwellings are no match for the persistent porker, who has more up his sleeve than huffing and puffing. It takes a chance encounter with a flamingo pushing a wheelbarrow full of flowers to provide a surprising and satisfying solution to the little wolves' housing crisis.
Eugene Trivizas's hilarious text and Helen Oxenbury's enchanting watercolors have made this delightfully skewed version of the traditional tale a contemporary classic.

From the Publisher:

It was time for the Three Little Wolves to go out into the world, so they set off and built themselves a splendid brick house. But they hadn’t figured that the Big Bad Pig would come along... Translated into 15 languages, and with more than 500,000 copies sold, this hilarious retelling of the three little pigs became the talk of the children’s book world when published in 1993. Among its many awards were BOOKLIST’s Editors’ Choice, SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL’s Best Books of the Year, American Library Association Notable Book, nominations for the Arizona, Indiana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee State book awards, and the list goes on.

Eugene Trivizas is one of Greece’s foremost writers for children. Helen Oxenbury, one of the world’s best–loved illustrators, is a two–time winner of the prestigious Kate Greenaway award for illustration, most recently for her retelling of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

About the Author:

Helen Oxenbury is the renowned illustrator of many classic picture books, including We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig by Eugene Trivizas. Ms. Oxenbury lives with her husband, illustrator John Burningham, in North London.
