The Three Pigs

By David Wiesner

Almost everything happens in the “white space” of the book, while the story progresses without them. The words are the same, but the illustrations change to reflect the confusion of the wolf. Ignoring their own story, the pigs go exploring other stories, rescuing or being followed by other characters. They decide to go back to their story and re-write the ending as they want it.

The story targets an older audience; one with the ability to understand what’s happening without a lot of text. The gorgeous art easily tells the story, and I recommend it especially as a tool for helping youngsters think outside the box.

Suggested Ages: 6-9
