TERRIBLE! Well there are some cute lines in there. This book is grossly offensive! And not for little children! I had to skip several lines of the book because of the language this author chose. And I do not get offended easily. I do not recommend this book to anyone!

A great retelling of the Three Little Pigs tale. This story holds up with age, as there are lots of things I missed as a child that I caught as an adult. A great read!

This is the story of the 3 Little Pigs as told by "Alexander T. Wolf." The pigs have the story all wrong as he was only trying to borrow a cup of sugar to make a cake for his granny's birthday. With fun pictures and an even funnier story, adults will laugh just as hard as the kids do.

"It seemed like a shame to leave a perfectly good ham dinner lying there in the straw. So I ate it up. Think of it as a cheeseburger just lying there."

Most of the cleverness was lost on my 4-year old, but I plan to try again next year. I certainly enjoyed it.

This retell of the Three Little Pigs is a great story that allows students to see that there can be different ways of seeing things. Great story to read aloud and the illustrations are great. Good book students will enjoy.

I recommend this book for reading because it tells the wolf's side of the story. In the real world there are always 2 sides of a story and as the reader it is up to use to determine which side we believe. In this story wolf switches roles from being the bad guy to being the defenseless character that just wanted to borrow some sugar and just so happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. This 2sided story allows children to think and to form their own opinions on the situation. The illustrations in the book are magnificent and very detailed. The overall theme is magnified through the pictures. There are so many real world connections that can be made when reading this price of literature especially because we are already familiar with the original story of The Three Little Pigs.

The true story of the three little pigs was told in a different setting.The wolf is made out to be the good character rather than the bad character as told in many books before. I almost like the way this book was told.

One of my favourite stories from childhood. There is always another side to the story, so who do you believe?

Great comedic story for demonstrating a different point of view, particularly for grades 3 & 4.

A. Wolf is innocent and here's his side of the story to prove it.
