The Three Ninja Pigs - Corey Rosen Schwartz,Dan Santat

This book puts a kicking twist on the original story "The Three Little Pigs". The ninja action words can keep a reader engaged. The three little pigs go to ninja school to learn how to fight the big bad wolf, "Ninja Style". This book is great for retelling the "Three Little Pigs Story" in an fun and interesting way. I can use this book when I am doing a compare and contrast lesson. I could read the original book and read the Three Ninja Pigs and see if my students can compare and contrast the two books. 

RL: 3.2

The Three NInja Pigs
The Three Ninja Pigs - Corey Rosen Schwartz,Dan Santat

The Three Ninja Pigs written by Corey Rosen Schwartz is a 3.2 on the Accelerated Reading leveling system. This is a hilarious re-imagined version of the Three Little Pigs fable. In the story the pigs train to be ninjas to defeat the wolf. In the end only sister pig trains long enough and defeats the wolf. This is a great book for a fairy tales unit. It also shows that there are many versions of the same story for all different interests.

The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs! - John A. Scieszka

Grade Level: Pre-K-K, 1-2, 3-5

Lexile Level: AD570L

This book is about the classic story, "The Three Little Pigs" but told from the wolf's point of view. The wolf is going to bake a cake for his grandmother but he is out of sugar. He goes to each pig's house asking for sugar but he is suffering from a cold and his sneezes are what blows their houses down. From their houses falling down, the first 2 pigs die and the wolf eats them, therefore, giving him the title of the "bad guy". He is sent to jail but it was all a misunderstanding, or so he says. This book would be great to use for a point of view lesson or a lesson on comparing and contrasting.

This is a version of the Three Little Pigs that shows the story from the wolf's point of view. In this story, the wolf is baking a cake for his grandmother but he does not have any sugar, so he decides to go visit the little pigs down the road to get some. As he comes up to the first house, the little pig was rude and would not give the wolf any sugar. The wolf had to sneeze and accidentally blew the pig's house down. The pig passed away and the wolf decided not to leave such a great snack just lying there so he ate the pig. He went to the second house and the same thing happened, the wolf sneezed and blew the house down, killing the pig. That poor pig was also eaten. The third house was made of bricks so the wolf was not able to accidentally blow the house down. The police came to arrest the wolf and put him in jail. 

I would use this story to help introduce the concept of different points of view.
