A brilliant re-take of the story,
This review is from: The True Story of the Three Little Pigs (Picture Puffin) (Paperback)
This book is all about point of view.
Told for the first time from the point of view of the "Big, bad wolf", the story of what really happened that day with the three little pigs and their houses sounds quite different. The main facts are the same - you can't contest that the houses actually fell down and the pigs were gone, but was it the wolf's fault?
Interpreted by the wolf, the story takes on a completely different character and we begin to wonder about those really rude and unhelpful pigs. It is also told with great humour that should have children of all ages laughing.
The book shows readers that there are always two sides to every story and that the facts alone are often insufficient. Written by the winners, the story is obviously going to be biased in their favour. But when written by the loser - will it be truth? It's certainly very different (apart from being hilarious).
