The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat Bad Wolf by Mark Teague

the-three-little-pigs-and-the-somewhat-bad-wolfBetween this book and The Three Ninja Pigs, a karate-tastic version by Corey Schwartz (who gave us a dramatic reading at the store the other day – check it out!), we’re loving the Big Bad Wolf here at Hooray for Books.  Or in this case, the Somewhat Bad Wolf, who really isn’t bad so much as hungry.  The two pigs who don’t choose sensible bricks spend most of the book eating chips and soda while the third pig works hard and starts a garden.  The underlying message about healthy eating is awesome, and all the house-blowing-down antics are appropriately goofy and fun.  It’s got a cute ending in which absolutely nobody gets eaten, except maybe some fresh produce from the third pig’s garden.
