Another book recommendation, this time in English, is one we love to read here at home, The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, by Eugene Trivizas with illustrations by Helen Oxebury. In this book, the classic story of the Three Little Pigs is turned inside out. This time the three little wolves come together and use modern materials, such as concrete, chains, steel, barbed wire, to construct houses to protect themselves from the Big Bad Pig. It is a great book and has a lovely ending.
I recommend Reading this book to children between 4 and 9 years old, when they can already realise the difference between the two stories.
