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.

This is a great book for students to read for many reasons. It tells the story of the three little pigs from the viewpoint of the wolf. This book would be great for a lesson on points of view as well as compare and contrast. I have done one lesson with this book that focused on inferences. This is a great book that can offer a variety of lessons.

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs provides a new take on the traditional story of the three little pigs. Alexander T. Wolf offers a new perspective on the classic story.

This book received a Lexile score of AD570L, making it a book to be read by the teacher to a group of students. This book can be used to teach about perspectives, and that there are multiple sides to each story.

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs 25th Anniversary Edition - Jon Scieszka,Lane Smith

In this book, you get to see the story of the three little pigs from the wolf's perspective. The wolf claims that all he needed was a cup of sugar, so he went to ask each of the pigs if they had any. When he arrived at each house, he felt a sneeze coming, and his sneezes were so big that they blew down the first two houses made of straw and sticks. His sneeze was not big enough to knock down the third house made of brick, though, and the pig that lived inside called the police to take the wolf away. The wolf says that he was framed. 

 

This book could be used in the classroom for comparing and contrasting with the original story of The Three Little Pigs. It could also be used to talk about point of view.
