This is an excellent variation of an original classic. This story incorporates different types of martial arts and teaches important lessons along the way. It teaches young readers that success does not come from being lazy and quitting. It also teaches young readers that it is never to late to perfect a craft. I love this version and I think that it will be easily enjoyable at even older age groups. I would use this story in my room to teach life lessons, timelines, and sequencing of events. Students could also compare this to other versions of The Three Little Pigs.
