Description

Edgar Award-nominated author Brenda Seabrooke reimagines the tale of the three little pigs in this enchanting fable. Here James, Marvin, and Lester Pygg have just put the finishing touches on their new brick house when a knock sounds at the door. It's a wolf! But the Pyggs know better than to let a big, bad wolf in. So the wolf hatches a new plan-sit and wait until the Pyggs come out. "Seabrooke's first-rate dialogue is consistently fresh ."-Publishers Weekly

Professional reviews

"Andrew Watts evokes a complex wolf character whose believability is central to this twist on the traditional tale of "The Three Little Pigs." He portrays Wilfong with a gruff edge that is reminiscent of the original "Big Bad," but this wolf's responses to his experiences with the Pygg brothers change both their stereotypes and the listener's views of them. Watts quickly builds compassion for Wilfong as the wolf chatters with cold, gets sick on the bus, and "urps" on the Ferris wheel. Watts is equally skillful at evolving a convincing sense of how the Pygg brothers' relationship with the friendly wolf changes. In the satisfying ending, Watts dramatizes Wilfong's willingness to be part of the Pygg family as he helps defeat a really fierce bunch of wolves. S.W. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
