More “Three Little Pigs” Retellings

We are having so much fun adding our own geeky twist to classic fairy tales! It’s also fun to read how other authors and illustrators reinvent some of our favorite tales. Here are a few suggestions for even more creative retellings of The Three Little Pigs:

Three Ninja Pigs*
Written by Corey Rosen Schwartz
Illustrated by Dan Santat

“When the big bad wolf threatens their village, three pigs sign up for different martial arts lessons to prepare to take him down. Pig One and Pig Two don’t stick with their training, though, and are no match for their foe. But after practice and dedication, Pig Three becomes great at karate (including perfecting the perfect pork chop!) and saves the day.”

The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs!
Written by Jon Scieszka
Illustrated by Lane Smith

“You may think you know the story of the Three Little Pigs. But you don’t know the whole story until you’ve heard A. Wolf’s side of the story. Mr. Wolf huffs, and he puffs, and he has a very bad sneezing cold. He also needs a cup of sugar to make a birthday cake for his dear, sweet granny’s birthday. Read and learn. Then decide for yourself–Big Bad Wolf . . . or media frame-up?”

The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot
Written by Margaret McNamara
Illustrated by Mark Fearing

“GREEP BOINK MEEP! The three little aliens are happily settling into their new homes when the Big Bad Robot flies in to crack and smack and whack their houses down! A chase across the solar system follows in this humorous and visually stunning book.”
