Almost all children are familiar with the tale of The Three Little Pigs, but Scholastic Storybook Treasures has taken it a bit further and provided a hilarious and entertaining DVD version with THE TRUE STORY OF THE 3 LITTLE PIGS…AND MORE ANIMAL ADVENTURES.

The title story on this DVD, "The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs" is based on Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith’s 5-star retelling of the classic fable, and offers the tale from the “Wolf’s” point of view.

Also included in this 62-minute beautifully produced animated DVD from the award-winning Weston Woods Studios is a special read-along feature and four other delightful stories: THE PIG’S WEDDING (Written and illustrated by Helme Heine) ; WALLACE’S LISTS (Written by Barbara Bottner and Gerald Kruglik, illustrated by Olof Landstrom, narrated by Zach Braff); HENRY BUILDS A CABIN (Written and illustrated by D.B. Johnson, narrated by James Naughton) ; THIS IS THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT (Written and illustrated by Simms Taback, narrated by Mandy Patinkin) plus an interview with Scieszka and Lane.

Best pricing for THE TRUE STORY OF THE 3 LITTLE PIGS…AND MORE ANIMAL ADVENTURES is currently available through Marketplace for $5.15 plus shipping and handling – a bargain for this excellent compilation, and guaranteed to keep kids happily entertained on a snow day or sick day.
