Is Mr. Wolf Guilty As Charged?

Wolves can be many things: swift, sneaky, ferocious, cunning but sometimes they get a bad rap. 

Do you think Mr. Wolf is guilty? Wait!!!  Before you answer  you need to check out The True Story of the Three Little Pigs 25th Anniversary Editionby Jon Scieszka.  This is a delightful picture book that has devoted fans everywhere;  beloved by children and adults alike.  Who knows,  it might just become one of your favorites.   

A contemporary classic celebrates its 25th birthday. Twenty-five years in the Big House and A. Wolf is still sticking to his story: he was framed! As for that huffing and puffing stuff? A big lie. A. Wolf was just trying to borrow a cup of sugar to make his poor old granny a birthday cake. Who should you believe, the pigs or the wolf? You read. You decide. A quarter-century after publication, with over two million copies sold, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs remains as funny as irreverent as the inventive minds of Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith. Viking is celebrating this landmark anniversary with a handsome gift edition, featuring a stunning new jacket with lots of silver. And there's a surprise inside as well!
