The Three Little Pigs

The Three Little Pigs (Railroad Books Series) - James Marshall

This version follows the story line that a mother pig let her 3 baby pigs off when they got old enough. The first pig built a house of straw, the second built a house of sticks, and the third built a house of bricks. After the big bad wolf blows down the first two pigs' houses and eats them, he attempts to do the same to the third pig but fails. The wolf tells the third pig he was only kidding and tries to befriend him, only to find out that the pig was plotting revenge the whole time. I had not previously read this version of The Three Little Pigs, but I liked how the pig tricked the wolf at the end! It also has a video version of the story to go along with it on YouTube. 

 

In the classroom, this story would be great for comparing and contrasting with The True Story of the Three Little Pigs.
