One day, one little piggy didn’t want to go to school, and so when she came home, she made up an elaborate story about her day, including getting on the wrong bus, and getting captured by a wolf who wanted to make her into soup. Do you believe her? And what is the Hog Eye? You’ll have to read Hog-Eye for yourself to decide.
Hog-eye is a retelling of the classic story of The Three Little Pigs where the pig, in this case, wins the day. This book would be a great read to pair with the classic Pigs, or for discussing how authors use each other’s works to create parodies, re-tellings, modernizations, and adaptations for a new audience.
