We are taught that there are always two sides to a story. In the case of the 3 little pigs we have never heard the wolf's side of the story... until now. In The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka we learn that the wolf is neither big nor bad, but rather just a neighbor that has run out of sugar. We all know how the tale ends, but check this book out to hear the wolf's side and see whose version you believe.
Bad Boys by Margie Palatini. Those bad boys, Willy and Wally Wolf, are in trouble. Again. On the run after snatching picnic baskets and blowing down houses, the wolf duo need a place to hide. As they are wondering what to do, they hear the beautiful and mouth-watering sound of sheep baa-ing on the hillside. “Are you thinking what I’m thinking?” the wolves say to each other. Can you guess what they do? That’s right – they disguise themselves and become wolves in sheep’s clothing. Will the wolves be able to hide safely among the sheep? Will they dine on lamb chops for dinner? Find out in this humorous tale of wolves gone bad.
