The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat Bad Wolf
( by Mark Teague, Orchard $16.99 Score: )

Somehow variations on the Three Little Pigs keep coming and in the hands of Mark Teague, both the telling and the showing make for a very merry romp. Here a somewhat bad wolf goes through his usual paces at the usual straw and stick places. But when he gets to the brick house you are in for a surprise. It should be no surprise that the smart pig with the bow on her head is the one who is clever enough to build her house of bricks. Like so many of her gender she is able to predict outcomes. But, here's the spoiler alert: There is no chimney scene and all's well that ends well. It's easy to imagine what fun it could be hamming it up (oops, couldn't resist) as you share this fractured tale. 4-7
