You thought you knew the story of the “The Three Little Pigs”… You thought wrong.
In this Spanish translation of the hysterical and clever fracture fairy tale picture book that twists point of view and perspective, young readers will finally hear the other side of the story of “The Three Little Pigs.”
“In this humorous story, Alexander T. Wolf tells his own outlandish version of what really happens during his encounter with the three pigs…. Smith’s simplistic and wacky illustrations add to the effectiveness of this fractured fairy tale.”—Children’s Literature
Here, Scieszka’s text is clever, savvy, and tabloid-quick, and Smith’s stretchy-strange illustrations complete this funny, irreverent, thoroughly original tale.”–Amazon.com
Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs is a new take on the fairy-tale classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears, so funny and so original—it could only come from the brilliant mind of Mo Willems, the author/illustrator of Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and the Elephant and Piggie series.
Trip-trap! Trip-trap! How is Mr. Troll supposed to sleep when the three Billy Goats Fluff keep trip-trapping over his bridge?

But when Mr. Troll threatens to eat them, Mother Goat has a fluffy plan to keep everyone happy in this funny twist on a classic fairy tale!
