Every aspect of the traditional tale is reversed to its ridiculous extreme in this perfectly worded and illustrated retelling of “The Three Little Pigs”. I guess it could be seen as light and corny — and maybe this makes me light and corny — but I find this story to be meaningful, relevant and full of hope. After all, wasn’t Einstein’s definition of insanity repeating an action and expecting a different result?
