Picture Book Spotlight: Beanie’s Choice

February 20, 2006 @ 2:34 am | Filed under: Books, Picture Book Spotlight

061800701601_aa_scmzzzzzzz_The Three Pigs by David Wiesner, author and illustrator of the enchanting Tuesday. In this fresh take on the old tale, the wolf’s huffing and puffing blows the pigs right out of their book. They wander among rows of storybook pages, popping in and out of selected tales and gathering friends as they go. The stunning art (no surprise, since this is Wiesner, winner of multiple Caldecott Medals, including one for this book) is filled with intriguing details that kept my younguns poring over the page.

  1. I love it when stories get mixed up like that! 🙂

  2. Thanks for the wonderful recommendation!

    Along those lines, Wait! No Paint! also follows the Three Little Pigs, whose misadventures have more to do with the illustrator than the Big, Bad, Wolf.

  3. This is one of my favoirte picture books! I really like David Wiesner!

  4. He wrote my current favorite children’s book, Hurricane. It is so like my children after the recent hurricane!
