Marie-Louise Gay brings her charmingly wacky style to the
familiar tale of the three little pigs. Fresh, bright colors and
witty figure drawings bring the wolf and pigs to life. Despite the
sad ending that befalls two of the pigs and the wolf, it's
impossible not to be enchanted with this anything-but-classic
rendering of the traditional tale.
"The Three Little Pigs has always been one of my favorite fairy
tales. It is a joyful, heart-thrilling story in which children can
easily recognize their emotions. They see their own doubt,
insecurity, fear and courage in every one of the little pigs and in
the big bad wolf himself, which makes the story an empowering tale
about growing up and acquiring intelligence and cleverness. And, of
course, I've always considered pigs to be lovely,
intelligent creatures and a joy to draw."
