The true story of three little pigs by Jon Sciezka and Lane Smith

A classic and satirical take on Three Little Pigs fable. It is brilliant story telling and the illustrations by Lane Smith are magical, as always. This book was rejected by dozens of publishers and there is an interesting story that Lane Smith tells about how all this book happened.
