The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka

The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs - Jon Scieszka, Lane Smith

Most of us are familiar with the predictable classic fairytale, The Three Little Pigs, but we finally get to hear the wolf's side in this humorous story.  This is a well loved book, received by all ages, and is a great selection to study point of view and perspective.  I would first read the original tale of The Three Little Pigs to my second or third graders and discuss the author's point of view through the pig's perspective, followed by a reading of this book discussing the story from the wolf's perspective.  I would use these books to explain why it is important to hear from more than one point of view.
