A twist on the classic story of the Big Bad Wolf and the Three Little Pigs, Award-winning master etcher Arthur Geisert’s version, reimagines the pigs as considerably more resourceful, thanks to their mother’s forewarning to be prepared for what the world has in store. Despite the wolf ’s best attempts to blow each pig’s house down, his plans are foiled by some clever engineering and architecture. Created with Geisert’s signature style of etching and hand-coloring, the intricate illustrations offer a world for inquisitive young readers to get lost in, finding new details to return to with each re-reading.
