Big Bad Wolf's first visit to his local library was such a success that he returns to tell his version of The Three Little Pigs. His outrageous spin on the tale draws skeptical remarks from his audience: Isn't that wolf's nose getting longer?, asks Pinocchio. It's a cooked-up, half-baked tale, snaps the Gingerbread Boy. Caught in his own lie, B.B. Wolf explains that he is a reformed villain: Now I'm begging on my knees, Little Pigs, forgive me, please! How B.B. turns his bad old deed into a good new one provides a happy ending to this fun-to-read fractured fairytale. * Hardcover book with 40 pages * Suitable for all young readers
