A noteworthy review of Favorite Children's Stories from Children's Bookwatch on August 1, 2012

The Three Little Pigs is an old children’s tale with a valuable moral: When entering independence, be vigilant, plan ahead, build sound defenses, and outthink your adversary! This charming retelling of an old tale is charmingly illustrated with friendly looking pigs and even a mild mannered wolf (who nonetheless ate two of the three pigs, the more unwary). The Three Little Pigs is a childhood classic re-imagined, deserving many more reprisals among the young.
