Although just about all of us think that we know the story of the three little pigs, in this comical picture book, A. Wolf clears up some misunderstandings. According to A. Wolf, we simply have not heard his side of the story — until now.
While we may believe that the wolf who visited the three little pigs huffed and puffed to blow the pigs’ houses down, it turns out that he simply had a bad cold and had a powerful sneeze. Who could blame him for eating the pigs that died when their houses fell as a result of his sneezing?
Furthermore, the wolf was only visiting the pigs in the first place to borrow a cup of sugar to make a cake for his grandmother’s birthday. The pigs wouldn’t even give him any sugar!
When the third pig insulted his grandmother, A. Wolf “got a little crazy.” The police found him trying to break down the pig’s door, and news reporters wrote the story that we have come to know.
