True Story of the

Three Little Pigs



'Designed with uncommon flair,' said PW, this 'gaily newfangled version of the classic tale' takes

sides with the villain. 'Imaginative watercolors eschew realism, further updating the tale.' A

Spanish-language reprint will be issued simultaneously ($4.99, -055758-X). Ages 3-8. Copyright

1996 Reed Business Information, Inc. Read more Ages 6-9.Jon Scieszka's The True Story of the

Three Little Pigs (1989) turned the favorite porkers' story upside-down by allowing the grossly

misjudged wolf to tell his side of the story. Wiesner's latest is a post-modern fantasy for young

readers that takes Scieszka's fragmentation a step further: it not only breaks apart and deliciously

reinvents the pigs' tale, it invites readers to step beyond the boundaries of story and picture book

altogether.The book begins predictably: the three pigs set out to seek their fortune, and when the

first pig builds a house of straw, the wolf blows it down. Here's when the surprises start. The wolf

blows the pig right out of the picture and out of the story itself. In the following frames, the story

continues as expected: the wolf eats the pig and moves on to the other houses. But the pictures

no longer match up. Frames show the bewildered wolf searching hungrily through the rubble as

first one, then all the pigs escape the illustrations and caper out into open space with the loose

pages of the wolf's tale swirling around them. After fashioning a paper airplane from a passing

page, the emancipated pigs soar off on a sort of space flight through blank white spreads,

ultimately discovering other picture-book 'planets' along the way. Finally, the pigs wander through

a near-city of illustrated pages, each suggesting its own story. Joined by the nursery rhyme Cat

and Fiddle and a fairy-tale dragon, the pigs find and reassemble the pages to their own story and

reenter to find the wolf still at the door. In the end, the story breaks down altogether, as the wolf

flees, the text breaks apart, letters spill into a waiting basket, and the animals settle down to a bowl

of . . . alphabet soup instead of wolf stew.Wiesner uses shifting, overlapping artistic styles to help

young readers envision the pigs' fantastical voyage. The story begins in a traditional, flat, almost

old-fashioned illustrative style. But once the first pig leaps from the picture's frame, he becomes

more shaded, bristly with texture, closer to a photographic image. As the pigs travel and enter

each new story world, they take on the style of their surroundings--the candy-colored nursery

rhyme, the almost comic-book fairy tale--until, in the end, they appear as they did at the beginning.

Chatty dialogue balloons also help guide children through the story, providing most of the text

once the characters leave the conventional story frames, and much of the humor ('Let's get out of

here!' yells one pig as he leaps from a particularly saccharine nursery world). Despite all these

clues, children may need help understanding what's happening, particularly with the subtle, openended

conclusion. But with their early exposure to the Internet and multimedia images, many kids

will probably be comfortable shifting between frames and will follow along with delight. Wiesner

has created a funny, wildly imagined tale that encourages kids to leap beyond the familiar, to think

critically about conventional stories and illustration, and perhaps to flex their imaginations and

create wonderfully subversive versions of their own stories. Carolyn PhelanCopyright ©
