Life is delightful when a little pig escapes not only the big bad wolf but the entire story as well! He persuades the next little piggy to adventure into the unstructured space between drawings. Soon all three piggies, a dragon, and a wondering cat are safely enjoying one another's company in the red brick house whilst supping on alphabet soup with ingredients stolen from the text.
This is such a fun version of the three little pigs. Fairytales are all about escapism, and this one takes that joy to the next level. The illustrations while the story is in motion are a little flat, but become more detailed and robust as creatures make their escape. This adds a wonderful element to the story. Don't settle for the every-day, pick up this book and make your own escape into its intriguing twists and turns.
