Painting with aerial view of hands touching a book with pictures of 3 houses, made of straw, wood, and brick. Caption. Everybody knows the story of the 3 Little Pigs.

This classic story is provocatively recounted from the perspective of the wolf, bringing the true tale of this historically maligned character. Was he really as big and bad as reported? Maybe. Hilarious? Definitely. Based on the book by Jon Scieszka.
