Book Review: True Story of the 3 Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka - Reviewed by (22 Mar 2013)

Original and funny children books are few and far between and ones that also appeal to adults are rare.

True Story of the 3 Little Pigs is an excellent book and one that as an adult I probably got more out of it more so than my child. So much so that I have offered the book to my friends as a must read.

The story is a very clever retelling of the three little pigs taking each scenario and turning it on its head so the wolf seems innocent and blameless. The illustrations are well done a very funny and clever book, recommended.
