This book is so freaking awesome! Everybody should read it- now. Just do it. Just eat it. I mean... whatever. BTW, this is Barbara (Seth's sister )writing Seth's review. Back (this is Barbara pretending to be Seth)in my day, when I was but a wee lad of the tender age of four or five or something,...

This is one of my favorite books as a child. I always enjoyed the idea that the true story of the three little pigs, was different than what we knew to be true. I have to say even as a child I always liked the big bad wolf better than those annoying little pigs, maybe this was an early sign of my...

To check out my reviews: I remember being introduced to this book when I was in 7th grade by my civics teacher. She is a lawyer and during that period she wanted to showcase what lawyers do in the courtroom and the jargon terms they use when they prosecute and...

Having grown up with the story of "The Three Little Pigs," when I first read this spoof on the traditional tale, I just had to laugh. The wolf tells his side of the story just like young children always feel it's important to give their version of what happens. According to the wolf, he was not d...

Instead of being an intimidating, evil wolf, he went to his two neighbors (the pig brothers) to borrow a cup of sugar. He had a rather nasty cold and so he end...

I remember the librarian at my elementary school reading this to my class not once, not twice, but three times when I was a little girl. It was one of the more popular stories/fairy tale adaptations in our library, "The Three Little Pigs" told from the wolf's perspective. I still remember there w...

Snarky and cute! The classic tale told from the wolf's point of view :) Excerpts: -------- “Nobody knows the real story, because nobody every heard my side of the story.” “I don’t know how this ‘big bad wolf’ thing got started, but it’s all wrong. Maybe it’s our diet. It’s not my fault wolves eat cut...
