~Written by Roberto Piumini
~Illustrated by Nicoletta Costa
The traditional "I'll huff and I'll puff" have been replaced with "Hey you, open up!" This modern twist is comical, but also helps portray the wolf as the rude bully he is meant to be.
The author also uses a clever play on words, such as, "wolfish place" and "wolfish silence" to imply that the wolf is not far behind.
Nicoletta Costa is an exceptionally gifted illustrator and her images will amuse readers. Her spirited pigs and cunning wolf bring so much to the story.
I recommend picking up a copy of The Three Little Pigs available at Amazon.com.
