The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig

The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig

Written by Eugene Trivizas

Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury

Published by Egmont Books

A novel twist on the well known and well loved children's classic, turning the tables and setting three cuddly fluffy little wolves against a big, bad and extremely destructive pig. 

Helen Oxenbury's illustrations are beautifully drawn and the story may feel familiar but the novel little changes and twists are excellent fun, particularly if your child already knows the original story of the three little pigs and their houses of straw, sticks and bricks. 

Who knew that wolves could be such excellent builders and that pigs had access to dynamite!

Charlotte's best bit: The wolves getting their tails singed. 

Daddy's favourite bit: The armour plated house with its own entry phone and CCTV.
