Satisfying both as a story and as an exploration of story, The Three Pigs takes visual narrative to a new level. When the wolf comes a-knocking and a-puffing, he blows the pigs right out of the tale and into a whole new imaginative landscape, where they begin a freewheeling adventure as they wander-and fly-through other stories, encountering a dragon and a cat with a fiddle, among others. This familiar tale will never be the same old story again.

Beautiful… Radically reimagines not just the story of the eponymous pigs, but the book form itself.


Witty dialogue and physical comedy abound in this inspired retelling of a familiar favorite.

School Library Journal

With surreal, complex, layered and beautifully executed pictures this version has much to intrigue mystify and discuss.

The School Librarian

Very adventurous and a good read.
