The 3 Ninja Pigs

Book: The Three Ninja Pigs 3 ninja pigs

Author: Corey Rosen Schwartz

Illustrator: Dan Santat

Oh how I love this book. It’s plain old genius people. It’s the three little pigs tale that you know and love, updated, refreshed, and renewed. Corey Rosen Schwartz struts her masterful rhymes in a way that make me giddy. Dan Santat’s illustrations make the action come alive. And the punchline… oh the punchline – the subtle, wonderful, not overdrawn point that the third pig, who happens to be a girl(!), is able to best that ole wolf because she worked hard and stuck with it… cue the trumpets!  I love this book. Fans of this work should for sure check out the “sequel” Ninja Red Riding Hood. My review for that beauty is on my Goodreads page.
