This classic battle of wits, dramatically and charmingly illustrated by the award-winning Paul Galdone, is the perfect edition to any folk tale storybook collection.

Three little pigs set out to seek their fortune. Each pig builds himself a house: one of straw, one of sticks, and one of bricks. When a hungry wolf huffs, and puffs, and blows in the houses of two little pigs, the third pig realizes that he might need more than a sturdy house of bricks to keep the wolf away!

“A very appealing edition of a beloved story.”—School Library Journal

About the Author

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. He illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote. The winner of two Caldecott Honors, Mr. Galdone is fondly remembered for his lively style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.

Joanna C. Galdone is the author of many children’s books, including The Tailypo: A Ghost Story, and the daughter of acclaimed author and illustrator Paul Galdone.

Praise For…

"The three little pigs are appealing and the wolf agreeably wicked in Paul Galdone's colored illustrations for this winning picture-book version of a classic nursery tale. The book is particularly comfortable in size and shape for reading aloud to lap-sitters." Booklist, ALA

"Three little pigs to savor, and a wolf to lord it over: from the clover-sprigged jacket to the third little pig covering the steaming pot from which the wolf's tail protrudes, this is a blithe, unbloody business with a leer on the face of the wolf that you can only laugh at.ÉNo one will want to abandon Leslie Brooke but like Galdone's Henny Penny, this animates the tale for the widest possible audience." Kirkus Reviews

"Paul Galdone gives new life to the childhood classic with his colorful and realistic pictures. In each one, he manages to capture the mood of the moment, and, through subtle touches, adds much to the story. . . . All in all, a very appealing edition of a beloved story." School Library Journal —
