Reviews - What do customers think about The Three Little Pigs (Reading Railroad Books)?
Excellent version of a classic story Apr 18, 2008
This version of The Three Little Pigs is witty, engaging, and easy for younger listeners to follow. The illustrations are also fantastic; fans of James Marshall will not be disappointed. The only flaw to this book, in my mind, is the font. The font is fine for adult readers, but for novice readers just learning how to negotiate books on their own, it is a little distracting and unclear.
every child should read a least one book about the 3 pigs Apr 26, 2002
My 2.5 year old loves this book. Now he asks everyone what their house is made of.
As fabulous as the others Oct 24, 1999
I just couldn't bear to let a middle school kid give this book an "average customer review" of one star. This book is a side-splitter. Absolutely hysterical. My children were rolling on the floor. Also get Marshall's "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" and "Red Riding Hood" for a set of some of the best retellings ever. Marshall's wry sense of humor makes him a favorite in our home school.
