The Three Ninja Pigs - Corey Rosen Schwartz,Dan Santat

The Three Ninja Pigs is a primary example of a fractured fairytale, and it is written by Corey Rosen Schwartz. If your students really enjoy the story of the three little pigs, they are sure to love this modern version with ninja pigs! The three pigs attend a Dojo where they train to fight the big bad wolf. In the end, it is the ultimate showdown between the ninja pigs with their quick moves and the wolf with his stealth. The book’s Lexile reading level is AD630L, but I believe children of all ages from kindergarten to fifth grade would enjoy this modern spin. This would be a book that I would use to discuss fractured fairytales in the classroom. I would first read students the original version of The Three Little Pigs, and then I would read this book along with a couple of others for students to see the difference. I would then organize the students into their own book groups to do a study on fractured fairytales. I would assign each group an original tale, such as Little Red Riding Hood or Cinderella, and then give them fractured fairytale books to read and compare with. We could then organize a class book fair, where students in their group would present their original story and show the class examples of fractured fairytales that go along with the original.
