Children's Corner: The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs

 My husband sought this book out at the library because it was illustrated by Lane Smith, whom we love.  We knew it would be good, but we had no idea it would be this good.  My daughter can't stop retelling the story!  Jon Scieszka is telling the story from the wolf's point of view... about how he was framed.  Kidlet is very into there being two sides to every story right now (her's and ours!) so this is just perfect.

Apparently, the real story is about a sneeze and a cup of sugar...  and it's hilarious.  Alexander T. Wolf does have a point, "if cheeseburgers were cute, folks would probably think you were Big and Bad too."  He almost had me believing his version too...  almost.

Jon Scieszka's story is a riot with beautiful illustrations by Lane Smith.  I have a feeling this will become another permanent addition to Kidlet's book shelves.
