Too Many Pigs and One Big Bad Wolf


Regular price $18.00

Cali, Davide & Balducci, Marianna

Hardcover, 36 pages

An unseen reader goes head-to-head with the big bad wolf in this hilarious counting-book twist on The Three Little Pigs. Once upon a time, there were three little pigs.

Then the wolf ate them.

THE END. This story is too short! I want a longer one! In this clever counting book, the big bad wolf doesn't want to tell a long story. He wants to get to the eating part. But the reader has other ideas. From a pig soccer team to a pig for every letter of the alphabet to 101 pigs in an animated movie, the stories get more and more fantastical . . . but they're always too short and they ALL end the same way. Using an abacus as the basis for her illustrations, Marianna creates beguiling little pigs and a menacing but slightly bored wolf that perfectly complement the inventive story by Davide Cali. Come for the counting, stay for the storytelling! This book has it all.
