What if the three little pigs' mother warned them about the big, bad wolf so that they could plan for―and even count on―his huffing and puffing? In this creative retelling, readers will be just as astonished as the wolf to discover how each pigs' strategic engineering unexpectedly leads to the familiar happy ending. Award-winning master etcher Arthur Geisert returns to his Clayton County, Iowa trilogy in this follow-up to Pumpkin Island. But this time, Geisert is back with his legendary pigs, whose remarkable resourcefulness and can-do spirit saved the day in Ice and The Giant Seed! Paired with Geisert's inventive and intricate illustrations, debut talent Lisa Pope Wilke's understated and droll text is sure to surprise and delight.
