Title Profile & Character Information

Huff and Puff

This interactive retelling of the Three Little Pigs story allows the reader to play the part of the big bad wolf. Three interior die-cut holes invite readers to huff, puff, and blow the pigs houses down This fractured fairy tale ends sweetly when, rather than blowing down the third pig s brick home, the wolf/reader blows out the candles on a cake baked by the pigs A satisfying and engaging read for every young Three Little Pigs fan.
Praise for Huff & Puff "Simple but wonderfully expressive, the illustrations are ink drawings with pale washes of tan, pink, yellow, and blue. A beautifully designed and wholly engaging picture book for young children."

"Sure to be a family favorite."

A good chance for youngsters to relish enacting the wicked role while still getting a friendly reconciliation at the end.
Kirkus Reviews

"Very young readers will get a kick out of taking the wolf s part, and their parents will appreciate that the scariest bits of the original tale have been omitted."
School Library Journal
"Like her repetitive text, Rueda s illustrations are gently funny and elegantly simple."
Horn Book
"The reader is encouraged to follow the pigs into the book."
