True Story of the Three Little PigsBook - 1989
Twenty-five years in the Big House and A. Wolf is still sticking to his story: he was framed! As for that huffing and puffing stuff? A big lie. A. Wolf was just trying to borrow a cup of sugar to make his poor old granny a birthday cake.
Who should you believe, the pigs or the wolf? You read. You decide.

In the book "The True story of the three little Pigs" is there is a wolf who is making a cake for his Grandma's birthday and he ran out of sugar and the wolf had a terrible cold so he asked his next door for a cup of sugar and next door was a pig and he had a house made of straws and when the wolf went to knock on the door the door fell and then he was feeling like he was going to sneeze and he sneezed and the house fell over and there was a dead pig and the wolf did not want to leave lunch there so he eat it and went to the next close door and that was the brother of the first pig and he rang the doorbell and the pig said" I do not want to fall in one of your traps" and said go away and then the wolf sneezed and the second little pig's house fell and the wolf ate the second little pig then he went to the third little pig's house and asked for the a cup of sugar but the third little pig said that some things mean about the wolf's grandma and the wolf left and the people who make it make the story add some things to the story like the wolf huffed and puffed and blew the house down. Now you know the story of The true story of the Three Little Pigs.
This is a retelling of the traditional story, The Three Little Pigs. The main difference is that the Big Bad Wolf is telling the story from his point of view in which he did nothing wrong and has been framed. Very funny and entertaining story.
This story is about a wolf that was originally known as the Big Bad Wolf, retelling his version of what really happen with the encounter of the three pigs. The wolf's intension was to go borrow sugar to make his Grandma a cake for her birthday. The wolf had been coughing and sneezing prior to traveling so when he arrived he accidentally blew the pigs house down. He tried to eat the pigs because he didn't believe in wasting food. The police arrived and let's say the wolf was at the wrong place at the wrong time.
The True story of the Little Pigs is retold with the same story line of the original story, but with the twist. The story is now being told by the wolf's side. This told to show readers that there are always two sides to a story. Very creative way to show that the Big Bad Wolf is trying to prove his innocence.
