Just in time for summer fun, the childhood favorite The Three Little Pigs is refreshed - in classic Mark Teague speak and style.

"Once there were three little pigs. They lived on a farm, as most pigs do, and were happy, as most pigs are. Then one day the farmer told them that he and his wife were moving to Florida. He paid the pigs for their good work and sent them on their way."

What to do with their new-found fortunes? Each pig has a different idea. When the big, very hungry, and somewhat bad wolf arrives in town, well, you can guess some of the story. But as we know, Teague doesn't always follow the script. This delectable read-aloud romp serves up a lot to squeal about.
