9780794000011: The Three Little Puppies and the Big Bad Flea

A delightful new twist on an old favorite with an all female cast of characters. Beware though, the flea wins! She's clever, not like that old wolf who went down the chimney.

About the Author:

Ted Lish is an elementary school teacher, teaching 2nd grade. He lives in Victorville, California with his wife, Vicki and their dog CC. Two of his four children are school teachers as well.

From Publishers Weekly:

Lish makes his debut with what proves to be an inane twist on the Three Little Pigs. Warned by their mama to "watch out for the big bad flea," a trio of heedless puppies sets off to seek their fortunes. The First Little Puppy builds a house of feathers, the Second Little Puppy chooses leaves, while the Third Little Puppy selects cast-off shoes. Why a flea needs to blow down a house in order to get at a puppy goes unexplained, but there's huffing and puffing aplenty before the flea bites the first two pups and then sneaks through the keyhole of No. 3's house. The story ends limply, with the flea chasing out the pups and raising "billions and billions" of children in the house of shoes, and with the puppies "learn[ing] a valuable lesson about listening to their mama" and moving far away from the flea. Jordan's (The Whale Comedian) cartoonish colored-pencil illustrations, rendered in a dull palette, fail to redeem the proceedings. Ages 4-8.
