    1. Pig Pigger Piggest (1997) by Rick WaltonTraditional literatureThis fractured version of The Three Little Pigs is completely unique and not like the rest. Pig Pigger Piggest takes a mid-evil spin on the original tale. The story begins introducing a royal pig family. There is a big pig named pig, a bigger pig named pigger, and the biggest of all three pigs, named piggest. These three brothers lived in a castle with their father, that is until he sent them off to make homes of their own. Pig found [...]



    2. This version of the Three Little Pigs was so different than any of the other versions I have read. It was unpredictable and silly to read. All the pigs made their houses out of bricks and there were witches instead of a wolf, but there were similarities with the original Three Little Pigs in the plot. The style of language used in this book was crafted in a very unique way. It used incorrect grammar and added –er and –est endings to words that did not make sense, but this made the story more [...]


    3. The tradidional story of the three little pigs is simlar to the three pig brothers who "make" friends with three sister witches.The pictures in this book are very unique, the three pigs in the story are not drawn to scale, they are made rather large. The pictures are goofy, in one picture the three pigs all have crazy different hats on. They all have the same facial expression but they are all different by what they are wearing. The pictures are rather appealing to children because it almost loo [...]


    4. A very fun retelling of the three little pigs! The illustrations are just as hilarious as the text and include fun details like mice named Squeak, Squeaker, and Squeakest to go along with the pigs: Pig, Pigger, and Piggest; the witches: Witch, Witcher, and Witchest; and the winds: Huff and Puff, Huffer and Puffer, and Huffest and Puffest. And at the end there is a perfect, perfecter, or even perfectest twist!


    5. This is a great twist on the classic tale. I used it as a read aloud with my first graders and they loved it. They weren't expecting the witches or them all to fall in love at the end (which of course drew a lot of ewwwwwws from the boys). I used it as my first book in my pigs unit and am kind of wishing I had read a slightly more traditional version for the first, but they know the original story so well it didn't hurt my compare/contrast lesson too much.


    6. I thought this was a funny spin on The Three Little Pigs. The key to it being cute was the use of important words from the story (pigs, huff and puff, etc.) and the repetition using the comparative and superlative. Also, the ending is a bit unexpected but also makes sense when you think about it, so it makes me smile.


    7. A book I oftened used while teaching school; it is a fun and creative retelling of the Three Little Pigs. Not only is it smart and funny, but it has fantastic illustrations. (And it really came in handy when I taught the concept of -er and -est.)


    8. This book uses the traditional story of the Three Little Pigs to discuss the idea of comparison, but the story changes somewhat. There are still phrases "huff and puff" that are true to the old story that children can recognize. Great illustrations as well!


    9. Word play (superlatives). This is a unique version of the three little pigs in which, instead of a wolf, the three pigs meet three witch sisters, After some huffing and puffing from ghosts, and a few good rains, they all live muddily and sloppily-ever-after.


    10. Despite being something of a tongue twister to read out loud (can you say "witchest's distictly?), this is a fun (and punny) book to enjoy. As you might guess, is helpful for discussion of superlatives.


    11. This book has taken the three little pigs and put a fun twist on it. The boys and I had some good laughs while reading it. We went through it again after reading it looking at all the pictures and laughing some more.



    12. This is an hilarious new version of "The Three Little Pigs" and I really enjoyed reading this out loud. A bit of a tongue twister at times!


    13. A spin on the 3 Little Pigs that is lots of fun. Very silly with fun illustrations to match. I think my 4 yr old enjoyed it as much if not more than I did.


    14. I absolutely loved it! A fun variation of the Three Little Pigs, with a happy, very cute ending. Wonderful pictures that add to the story!




    15. excellent resource for teaching comparatives (er) and superlatives (est). My students like the plot twists and are always interested.





    16. This is a funny retelling of the three little pigs. I love the illustrations and the repetition of the story line. It's a familiar story with unexpected twists! Funny. Funnier. Funniest!


    17. My students loved the wordplay and superlatives and the twist on the Three Little Pigs but reading it aloud was a chore and a half.


    18. Twist on the 3 little pigs. Talk about odd messages - perhaps love your enemies? Didn't really appreciate the illustration style.
