1 - 2 weeks availability


This interactive retelling of the Three Little Pigs story allows the reader to play the part of the big bad wolf. Three interior die-cut holes invite readers to huff, puff, and blow the pigs houses down! This fractured fairy tale ends sweetly when, rather than blowing down the third pig s brick home, the wolf/reader blows out the candles on a cake baked by the pigs! A satisfying and engaging read for every young "Three Little Pigs "fan. Praise for "Huff & Puff ""Simple but wonderfully expressive, the illustrations are ink drawings with pale washes of tan, pink, yellow, and blue. A beautifully designed and wholly engaging picture book for young children." "Booklist""Sure to be a family favorite.""" "Shelf-Awareness""" A good chance for youngsters to relish enacting the wicked role while still getting a friendly reconciliation at the end. "Kirkus Reviews""Very young readers will get a kick out of taking the wolf s part, and their parents will appreciate that the scariest bits of the original tale have been omitted." "School Library Journal" "Like her repetitive text, Rueda s illustrations are gently funny and elegantly simple." "Horn Book" "The reader is encouraged to follow the pigs into the book." "Library Media Connection""
