5.0 out of 5 stars An Architectural Tale, 22 Aug 2010

This review is from: The Three Little Pigs: An Architectural Tale (Hardcover)
This is a very different take on "The Three Little Pigs". The story follows the normal storyline, but something is slightly off-beat in this retelling of the classic. The pigs have a certain flair for architecture and design and their houses (rather than being the usual straw, sticks and bricks) are inspired by Frank Gehry, Phillip Johnston and Frank Lloyd Wright. There are also furnishings of world renowned designers, with pictures at the front to show you who designed what. This is a glorious book and very interesting to look at. My son, who is six, was very interested in the designs, and my daughter, three, liked the story. Perhaps ideal for a slightly older child, but the story stands alone and it is a very good book and an excellent introduction to architecture.

This review is from: The Three Little Pigs: An Architectural Tale (Hardcover)
Definitely an American version but keeps to the traditional plot and language e.g. not by the hair on my chinny chin chin. Excellent illustrations and interesting use of architecture and design classics which children can spot throughout the book and spark their interest in this area.
