A childhood favourite that has become my youngest son’s favourite, reading my original copy. Less sanitised version than nowadays, as (spoiler!) the first two pigs are eaten by the wolf. Read this so many times now that he practically reads along with me! Challenge list #2 (childhood)

1. Three little pigs have to find their way in the world. Each pig builds a house and they get tested by the wolf. He blows the first two down and fails to blow the third one down. The wolf ends up getting boiled by the last pig.2. This book connects with our chapter because it is a type of folk tale. The type is cumulative because each pig builds a house that is just a little bigger than the last pigs so it is repetitive. I think it could also be a fable because it has animals talking in human [...]

This story (or any version of it really) could be used as an example of predator and prey. The wolf wants to eat the pigs, but the pigs are able to get away. The students would be able to recognize that pigs wouldn't really escape by using a house that they built. The students could come up with more realistic ways the pigs might be able to defend themselves from the wolf, and give other examples of defenses that other animals have.

A superbly observed morality tale, dealing with the perennial challenge of any Project Manager as to how to manage the compromises between time, cost and quality.The Wolf is a plausible analogue for the modern day works inspector, issuing harsh judgements for sloppy, unsafe work; but always in the best interests of the pigs.An excellent addition to the Project Manager's bookshelf

i think the words for this book is at a third grade level and up.i recommend this because kids will like it because of the pictures and they can act out the scenesis story is about three little pigs building three different types of houses in the wolf tries and blow them down but cant seem to blow the last one down.i would recommend this book to all little kids.

Not sure if this is the right edition, but I read this children’s classic a couple of times in childhood. Reckon the last time would’ve been when I was eight or nine, circa 1983-4.A must for all youngsters!

I could have sworn that the first two pigs survived and ran to safety to the brick house, funny how your memory of something changes Oh we'll, quite sad really and a bit of a barbaric ending!

From my ladybird book collection as a child, quite enjoyed all these tales.

I read this book a long time ago!!

Classic fairy tale about three pigs who leave home to build houses of their own. They run into trouble when they meet a big bad wolf who huffs and puffs to blow their houses down.

What a great little book. The pictures are what really make it fun.
