This picture book begins placidly (and familiarly) enough, with three pigs collecting materials and going off to build houses of straw, sticks, and bricks. But the wolf’s huffing and puffing blows the first pig right out of the story . . . and into the realm of pure imagination. The transition signals the start of a freewheeling adventure with characteristic David Wiesner effects—cinematic flow, astonishing shifts of perspective, and sly humor, as well as episodes of flight.Satisfying both as a story and as an exploration of the nature of story, The Three Pigs takes visual narrative to a new level. Dialogue balloons, text excerpts, and a wide variety of illustration styles guide the reader through a dazzling fantasy universe to the surprising and happy ending.

3.0 The Three Pigs
Gifted to me by a friend, who was mostly captivated by the illustrations, this book is a wonderful reminder that stories of old do not always have to end the way they always did. Stories can be written; the past is not just something to dwell upon.

5.0 The Three Pigs - Where was this all my life?
*Incomplete review-complete when reread*I was not prepared for this story. I figured it would be another retelling with pretty pictures until I started reading it. David Wiesner has created an unbelievable experience that takes storytelling to another level. He takes the reader beyond the level of o...
