Welcome to my first Book of the Month post where I will highlight a random book that I've enjoyed at some point in my life. It may be an award winner or just a winner to me, but I'll share my thoughts and would love to hear yours.
This month in honor of its 25th anniversary, I'm sharing The True Story of The 3 Little Pigs. I discovered this book when I was teaching first grade and immediately fell in love with it. My students and I enjoyed hearing this familiar nursery tale told from the Wolf's point of view. Who knew Alexander P. Wolf was framed? Who knew all he wanted was a cup of sugar for his dear old granny's birthday cake? Who knew that all this time we didn't know the real story!?!
Jon Scieska's was a pioneer in this idea of tweaking fairy tales to keep them fresh. Many have followed in his footsteps over the past 25 years, but if you want to check out an original, check out The True Story of The 3 Little Pigs, and let me know if you think Alexander P. Wolf is a big bad wolf or if he really was framed.
