About this book

The Three Little Pigs

Marie-Louise Gay

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."

-- Marie-Louise Gay
